Re: Special List of Non-Paying Customers of BPL
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I can state categorically that during my time (2007 - 2009) as executive chairman of BEC (now BPL), no policy was implemented or followed by the board which would have exempted persons on a special list from being disconnected for non-payment of their electricity bills.
Indeed, I recollect that the feathers of certain politicians (in both parties) were ruffled when it was made clear to them that their electricity supply would be disconnected for non-payment.
As someone who has, like the majority of customers of BEC/BPL, paid his electricity bills when due (whether he was chairman of BEC or not), I am offended and find it totally unacceptable and deplorable that the individuals who have recently been identified would have been exempted from being disconnected for non-payment of their electricity bills.
