When we look at people at 2 AM protesting against the BJP saying “BJP hay hay” due to power outages in various parts of Delhi, we are really bound to rethink our decision to bring the BJP into power.
BJP has made several promises to the general public in its manifesto, whether it is cheaper electricity 24*7 or a streamlined water supply. However, there is no sign that BJP leadership is in a mood to dispatch all its promises.
The Delhiites are already not getting any respite from this broiling heat, so these power outages really add fuel to fire.
The leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, Arvind Kejriwal is trying to poison the ears of the public against the BJP, by telling them that when power was in his hands, these situations never arose. He has been incessantly asking the BJP to elucidate the causes of these recent power cuts in Delhi and has also urged the party to take the necessary actions to untangle the problem.
These days both the parties are blaming each other for their own failure to provide better facilities to the public.
This is not the way to get mechanisms in place. Both the parties have to look for amicable solutions.
Union Power Minister, Piyush Goyal, has said in a statement that there is no fault with the volume of power, the problem instead is with the right distribution.
Now whatever the problem is, the Bhartiya Janta Party must now work tirelessly to search for some constructive solutions to the muddle. The new Power Minister has to work proactively rather than to only blame the power infrastructure of Delhi. He ought to come to the front to address the public with the root causes of the problem at hand. He has to emphasize on creating a properly organized policy framework and a time bound catalog to get the system back on the right track.
