Whats with the lights ???

Am actually pretty peeved right now …
We didn’t have lights for the entire day !!!

Ever since Congress has come to power … we’re having 3 hours of load shedding everyday …
And ever so often, on top of that … lights aren’t there for complete days …
Like today … there was load shedding from 3pm – 6pm … and then no lights from 6:10 – 8:00 and then again 8:10 – 11:30 !!!

I mean, whats wrong with these people ???
And on top of that, they are planning to give free power to the farmers !!!
From where is it going to come ?

Maybe, they should pick up some efficiency on the way and check out power thefts and do maintenance work more often …
And whats with the street lights being on most of the time during the day ??

We people pay all our bills … then why should we have power cuts ?
What we need is a system … in which, our bill gets reduced by some amount every minute that MSEB is cutting power … load shedding or otherwise …

That way, either they will get efficient … or bankrupt … opening the doors to private players like TATA Power or similar …
Either way, we should benefit …

Bombay apparently never has power cuts …
And the profit it generates, it will be suicidal for them to even cut power for a couple of hours …

Pune on the other hand, also generates a lot of income … but these really dumb politicians … give away free power to farmers … by cutting down on our power …

Hows the country going to progress ?

  1. hey…
    first of all…rishayy….why why why why why were u ever born!!!!why!!!!!!!!

    secondly…the reson we have these power cuts is ‘bcos of the free power to farmer thing.The maharashtra government just wanted to follow the very popular move of the new andhra governement.

    These politicians lose sight of rationality during election time.
    They will promise u rainbows and and ponies and magic beanstalks and the like…and when the time comes to keep up that promise…they know that they have to make some effort to keep up that promise…or the opposition creates a furore.

    So…now the free thing to farmers will go on for a year…after which the government will announce that “this option is not currently feasible”. A host of non-public favourable measures will come into place in the next three years..which will all be undone in the fifth yer of their regime when elections time comes around again.

    Any profit made in the first 4 years will all be overspent this one year just to woo the voters.
    Just wait and watch…chidambaram will bring out 3 more good budgets…and his last budget will be the “populist” budget…the one that throws all rationale out of the window and pushes us further into a huge well of debt.

    That i guess is the price for democracy..some people tell me that thats how democracy works…each party has to think for its own good..not the nations!!

    people tell me to be an idealist and that no opposition party shud approve a move by the ruling government…however great that mite be….’cos that apparently is not true democracy.

    i think churchill said that the purpose of an opposition is to oppose and do nothing else.
    i completely disagree with this…

    i dunno..maybe i’m unrealistic…or maybe i’m the one who is realistic….
