Power woes

 
June 17, 2021

This refers to the editorial ‘Power problems’ (June 15). It has nicely captured the key issues that have plagued our power sector: gross mismanagement and a lack of leadership. Even though similar issues are present in all sectors of our economy, the power sector offers a classic example. We lack the leadership that can pull the power sector out of its present quagmire. It has also completely failed to recruit competent managers and professionals who can overcome institutional barriers, inefficiencies and malpractices. It also continues to churn out ad hoc solutions even though the sector needs a systemic overhaul. To top it all, it has found a new and convenient strategy – shifting the blame on the previous regimes as if the voters had elected them merely for a joyride in the office.
