I would like to ask the concerned department to remove the TV license fee from our electricity bills. The electricity rates are sky high and already cause too much distress. This appendage which started four decades ago, by a ruler who was against people who watched TV, has continued without any thought of how it effects the public.

Even today, many people don’t have a TV set, but they are bound to pay for a facility that they are not using. Can anyone tell me why this happening and how it will stop?
