Title: Request the Central Government to take immediate steps to improve the power supply in the Capital.

SHRI HANNAN MOLLAH : Sir, I would like to draw the attention of the Government to a very serious problem being faced by the people of Delhi. It is about continuous power shortage. In the entire capital region, the people are reeling under heavy load-shedding. Everyday, there is a shortage of about 700 mw to 800 mw which may continue for another 10 to 15 days. I do not know for how many days it will continue. Everyday, a huge amount of power theft is also taking place in Delhi, but the Government is not taking any steps to stop it.

Yesterday, even in the VIPs area and in V.P. House area, there was a huge load-shedding. The Government is saying that there was a problem in the Northern Grid. The Government is talking about increase in the power generation but in actual life, we find that the Capital itself is facing a serious shortage of power. Even at some places of Delhi, there is a 24 hour power cut. Due to non-supply of power, water pumps are not functioning, and many works are at standstill.

Therefore, I would request the Government to take immediate steps so that the power supply in the Capital is improved.
