AGRATALA, July 6 (TIWN): Citing examples of various power plants, former Power Minister Manik Dey said that it was Left Government which developed infrastructure from almost 0% and if 0% is too much, then at least from 5% to 100%.

The former Minister asked BJP Govt to stop blaming the previous Govt.

“When I became the Power Minister in 2002, the load-shedding hours were 12 hours span”, he claimed.

He also ensured, no low quality machine was bought by the Govt, rather due to non-maintenance under the present BJP Govt transformers were blasted.

“All machines one day will become old. In this condition, either we have to maintain them or replace them. So, it’s meaningless to blame the previous Govt for own failure”, he said.

Dey further suggested Power Minister Jishnu Debbarma to go for field visits and talk with field workers. In office the Minister can get technical status but on ground there are separate types of problems. So, including all such problems Govt has to work for the solution.

Manik Dey also rubbished the idea of loans, saying central Govt should not ask states to take loan, rather it should go for ‘grant’.
