Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Tuesday told the Assembly that the electricity connection of a Nalasopara resident, who received his bill with 'Chhota Pakistan' as the address, has been cancelled as he had submitted fake documents.
"The electricity distribution company, as per the recommendations of its legal cell, has decided to permanently cancel the connection of the said individual as he had submitted fake residential proof. The Nalasopara police have also filed a case against the individual," Chavan said in a written reply to the Legislative Assembly during the question hour.
