Conspiracy behind power grid collapse: Team Anna

July 30, 2012 15:20 IST

Team Anna on Monday alleged a conspiracy behind the collapse of the northern power grid, with activists alleging that such developments were taking place in Delhi as Anna Hazare is sitting on an indefinite fast.

Kumar Vishwas, a member of Team Anna's Core Committee who is conducting the proceedings along with activist Sanjay Singh at Hazare's fast venue, said the government can do anything but people will come out and join the movement.

"The government can cut the grid, cut electricity, cut metro services, bus, auto services. But people will join Anna Hazare's movement," they said.

"The government is still arrogant and dictatorial. Till Anna sits on a fast, new developments will happen in Delhi. Today, the grid has failed, Metro is down but to reach here you don't need the Metro or a car. You need only will and courage," he said.

Almost entire Delhi went without power for about eight hours today due to the collapse of the northern grid, resulting in power outages in the capital and disruptions in water distribution and Metro services.
