Concerned citizens picket GPL against proposed tariff increase – 14th Jun 2013

shot0002For 72-year-old pensioner Barbara Gainer, paying the proposed increase of 27.5 percent on her light bill will be just too much for her and she believes it is unreasonable for GPL to ask customers to pay that increase.

The retired seamstress was  part of a picketing exercise in front of GPL’s Main Street office by some concerned  citizens today.  She said already her monthly  bills are  too much for her.

The concerned  citizens said that the proposed  electricity  tariffs  by GPL would create a heavy burden  on poor  people  in the country and could see an increase in crimes.

According to political activist Mark Benschop, the Government is playing political games. He  called on the Government to make a decision on the matter.

    Youu – Tube arguably dominates its competitors with more daily hits on its
    collective output than any other video holsting provider.
    There aare also hundreds of thousands oof videos
    that have been uploaded in there. Why, because iit gives us more time to doo other equally-important things.
