WB-MAMATA-POWER


West Bengal Chief

Minister Mamata Banerjee pulled up the state power department

officials in Jalpaiguri district Wednesday for faults in

powerlines.

Her ire was prompted by snapping of power supply four

times at the Tilabari tourist complex where she had stayed on

Tuesday night.

She was on a four-day tour to north Bengal.

"Government funds are being spent. (But) the people

are being harassed. Why is this happening?" she said.

Banerjee said lashing out at officials concerned that

if power problems take place where the chief minister is

staying, the situation of the common people is understandable.

"I will ask the chief secretary to hold a meeting with

the power department," the chief minister said.

West Bengal is a power surplus state.
