The cut that will never heal!
‘To Cut or Not to Cut’ gives a glimpse of the pathetic picture on this vital sector – ELECTRICITY’ – and need to be commended and commented on.
‘Minister Gamini Lokuge has said there will be uninterrupted power supply’. The confusion arises when it says CEB has obtained approval from Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka [PUCSL] for a scheduled power cut and the Minister for Power saying there will be uninterrupted supply.OH HOW INCORRECTLY INTERPRETTED May we the consumers know as to who administers the CEB and whom to believe. Is it the Ministry for Power or PUCSL? If it is PUCSL, what use is in having a Ministry and allocate this subject to the Ministry under which PUCSL is listed. It is pertinent to know who advised Minister Gamini Lokuge, for he is a layman to the subject. Those who advised, may be outsiders and not from the CEB as the CEB has received the approval for power cuts from PUCSL.
The next statement from President Gotabaya Rajapaksa who has instructed a group of officials of the CEB to explore ways and means to solve the problem.TOO MANY COOKS?
