Shiela Dixit says uninterrupted power for Delhi, but how?

The Delhi CM has promised continuous power this summer wihout a clear power strategy even after the grid failure and blackout of July 2012. Delhi is heavily dependent on electricity generated from coal fired thermal power plants as is the rest of the country. Renewable energy can reduce our dependency on coal and ensure a sustainable future, protecting our last remaining forests and the health and lives of our people.

Greenpeace India activists put up a satirical caricature in front of the Vidhan Sabha in Delhi, questioning Chief Minister Shiela Dixit’s power strategy. The caricature said ‘ab ki bar bijli lagathar’ (uninterrupted power from now on) playing on the CM’s assurance of uninterrupted electricity this summer.
