AGARTALA, Aug 12 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb breaking silence over the multiple transformers’ down incident on Sunday night challenged it as a ‘Big Conspiracy’. While addressing on the occasion of flagging off programme of the Beat Patrolling of two wheelers at Astabal Stadium, Deb said, “I have talked to the technically sound persons and all of them told me that it is no way possible that at a time 4 to 5 transformers will be down”. He also urged media and police to help Govt to find out who can be behind this conspiracy and not to be confused by planned incidents. Not only this, the Chief Minister has also ordered investigation and within 7 days sought report for that. He expressed extreme disgusts about employees’ tendency of keeping out the phone receiver and not to give response to the public, which further fueled resentments. Biplab Deb ordered 24X7 a total functioning of the power offices in his state and whenever they will be called, they must pick up phones just like "emergency situations" are observed. “I will find out who were involved in TSECL to do the conspiracy against power dept”.

CM raised an important question, “How do they (few among protesters) know where the fault was exactly lying and was fixed immediately after the protests ? That means conspirators are inside the department. Nobody will be spared whoever did that crime”.

It hit the logic after chronological events of attacking powerhouses came out at a time across Tripura.

When Agartala’s two power stations were facing massive protests at the same time in Bisahalgarh sub-division also same happened on yesterday night after long-load shedding which has injured a TSECL staffs minorly.

Also office properties were damaged due to mob-anger followed by hour-long load-shedding problems. The situation has gone so much out of control that securities had to be beefed up in the Power House. Also a case was filed in the police station against the ‘undemocratic’ way of protest. Why suddenly all the people across Tripura went out of control it has triggered question.

Power Dept Minister is Jishnu Deb Barman, who is also the Deputy CM. So far no statement has come from the Power Dept. The mob protest was turning into mob-violence as suddenly turned the situation out of control. Police said, now the situation is better whereas Govt properties as telephones and other furniture’s damage was condemned by TSECL. The staffs have demanded security.

 The cause of massive load-shedding has been transformer related matters according to Power Dept.

In Agartala also same thing happened, when on yesterday two power houses were attacked massively at Ram Nagar and in IGM.

On Sunday night followed by massive load-shedding and nonfunctional telephonic helplines, people of Agartala came in heavy protest and also vandalized the offices in Ramnagar and certain protests were staged in the IGM area. However, when congratulations are deserved for the protest, the damage of Govt properties could be avoided as these are public-properties, made out of public taxes. 

They also broke furniture inside the police station as few law and order problems allegedly emerged due to load-shedding. Reportedly such long power cut didn’t happen in last 10 to 12 years.
