Human life over electricity

Anil Ambani defends the power cuts imposed by Reliance Energy:
In the first 48 hours in consultation with the government authorities it was the unanimous decision that the protection of human life was the most important need rather than the availability of power and I am happy to report that amongst all our customers not a single, I must repeat not a single human life was lost due to accidental death because of the power situation. And this is over our very vast base of over one crore users of our power as well as our 24 lakh customers.
Read all that he has to say here. I find his explanation reasonable, actually. The reason that power has not been restored in places like Kalina is that the level of flooding there makes it dangerous to restore supply, and some transformers there are still under water. Waiting until the water recedes is quite the responsible thing to do. Once this crisis is over, though, Reliance should raise the height of the transformers and try to ensure, in every way possible, that floods don't affect them so much next time. Ambani says that they will do just that. Let's see.

Yes, I do think Reliance Energy i sbeing targeted a little too harshly. People are comparing their power-offs with Tata Power, which is not fair since Tata Power was always a private company, and its infrastructure, while being built, conformed to stricter standards.

Reliance Energy on the other hand, until a few years ago before the Ambanis bought it, used to be BSES, which was a state-owned entity. The transformers which are flooded were built by the government. Now the government has some cheek pulling up reliance for it.

So what are Narayan Rane and Vilasrao Deshmukh out to prove? That by threatening Reliance Energy with legal action, they're going to provide justice to the thousands of people in Kalina and Kurla? It's about time the media had an open debate on national TV - call the politicians and ask them questions - LIVE! Let Rane and Deshmukh try and prove their point: have they ever considered what would happen if electricity were switched on in the submerged areas of Bombay?
