‘Tripura is capable enough to generating enough power for own state, no need to buy from outside the state’, claims TSECL MD Shyamal Roy, yet Tripura reels under darkness
AGARTALA, May 6 (TIWN): When the entire state is hit with frequent power crisis, TSECL MD Shyamal Roy claims that Tripura is now a shedding free state and the power plants in Tripura are supporting well. TSECL MD Shyamal Roy’s words and the ground reality go different. Blackouts are a frequent occurrence in many interior part of the state because of a shortage of power and an antiquated electricity grid. At the same time, many of the people living in villages of the interior part of the state have no access to the electricity grid at all. Hot summer and a deficient monsoon season has increased the demand for power as farmers irrigate fields in rural areas and residents run their fan far longer than usual. The common people alleged that the power requirements have failed to keep pace with the demands of an expanding economy and a growing population of the village. As a result, power disruption for several hours a day has become a routine across much of the country.Talking to TIWN correspondent, TSECL MD Shyamal Roy said that Tripura is now load shedding Free State and the state is now not buying power from outside as the power plants in Tripura are supporting well.
