Mumbai : On Monday morning, power outages were reported in the entire Mumbai and MMR areas. The power outage lasted for more than a quarter of an hour due to grid failure and the city, which was gaining momentum, came to a virtual standstill.
From the signal systems on the roads to even the railways were disrupted and public life was disrupted. On the other hand, the classes of the schools started on the basis of online functioning were also disrupted, while the examinations of the students were disrupted. In view of this overall situation, the state’s energy minister Nitin Raut assured the people that the power supply would be restored within an hour. The power supply was restored in the next few hours. However, in these few hours, the opposition immediately started targeting the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi.
BJP’s Kirit Somaiya fired a cannon at the ruling party saying that most of the time since the Thackeray government came to power, the MMR sector has been in darkness. In the last two-four months since the Thackeray government came to power, the Mumbai MMR area has been in darkness. One hour of light goes on every day. Here the light is dimmed in full MMR. Now it is necessary to study why and how this happened and the power supply has been disrupted every day for the last few months’, said Somaiya and asked what solution the Thackeray government will take.
So, Ashish Shelar targeted the government saying that instead of waiving the electricity bill, the present government has started waiving the electricity from the people. ‘Corona period and other patients should not be disturbed when treatment is started. If repair and maintenance work is to be done at such a time, then there must be an alternative arrangement for it ‘, he said, taking the leading government of the state to task. He expressed his displeasure in strong words, saying that the situation is affecting the lives of the people because of what the Thackeray government is lighting.
The state government has zero planning, zero transactions and zero imagination, so today students, commuters, patients and the public are without power.
Take action against the officials who missed the plan.
The energy minister should disclose immediately.

He blamed the government’s lack of planning for the problems of ordinary citizens. Asked directly whether the government was responsible for the situation, Shelar slammed the authorities over the power outage.
