New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday sought long-term solution to avoid collapse of Northern Grid resulting in crippling outage witnessed in the city in the last two days.
"There has to be a long-term solution. I am sure Power Ministry will look into the issue as crores of people were affected by the power cuts," the Chief Minister said.
The national capital had reeled under massive blackouts for several hours on Monday and Tuesday after collapse of the Northern Grid, triggering disruption in metro and train services, crippling water distribution network and choking roads due to non-functional traffic lights.
Seeking concrete steps to contain overdrawal of power by certain states, Dikshit said discipline in the grid must be ensured by the Centre.
"Delhi never overdrew power but other states have been overdrawing," she said without naming the states.
Delhi Power Minister Harun Yusuf had on Monday accused Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh of overdrawing power from the grid, saying it led to the collapse.
