Piyush Goyal blames former Congress regime for power crisis

Earlier on Tuesday, the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre held the erstwhile Congress regime responsible for the ongoing power crisis in the national capital.

Addressing the media after holding an emergency meeting with Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and officials on Tuesday to discuss the steps to be taken to tackle the power crisis, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said: “Policy paralysis and poor execution by previous government is responsible for power crisis in the capital.”

Goyal assured that the power situation in the national capital, which is facing acute electricity crisis during the sweltering summer, will be solved within two weeks.

“It normally takes three months to restore lines after the damage we saw. We will work 24x7 and get them up in two weeks,” he said.
