“Change your habits… change your expenses… I am saying this for the linemen, inspectors, quality checkers and contractors… anyone who has problem with the new system should just resign and get out.” This message should reach to all juniors and seniors in the electricity department that if a single person is caught accepting bribe of even a rupee, he will face severest action. We will use every legal provision to punish such a person,” said Goyal. “If someone has a connection with contractors or relationship with them… because of olden days, such things should stop immediately,” he added.
