Grid failure has now taken a political shape as state BJP has termed the repeated failure of the northern grid as a complete failure of governance and demanded an apology from the Centre for causing inconvenience to the public.

In a statement, state BJP spokesperson Ganesh Dutt said barely 24 hours had elapsed since the government constituted a committee to look into the reasons for the grid failure and once again the entire region was hit by a power failure. He alleged that the UPA Govt is not taking the matter seriously and has failed to understand the serious repercussions that the issue could have for the industry.

The BJP leader said the people had the right to know who was responsible for this power failure and what action had been taken against them. He said the UPA regime must explain to the people the reason for such long-lasting power failures as it was badly hitting the economy.
