KATHMANDU, Nov 24: At the same time last year, people were compelled to live in dark up to 7-8 hours. But, things are different now. There is no load-shedding in the Kathmandu Valley since more than a month.

People are elated by the uninterrupted power supply round the clock. Consumers are thankful to Managing Director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), Kulman Ghising and Minister for Energy Janardan Sharma.

 However, they are confused whether power cut will restart or not.

Speaking with Nagarik Show, Minister Sharma has claimed that the uninterrupted power supply will continue in the Valley. He added that all the mechanisms have been deployed agilely and robustly for making Kathmandu Valley a load-shedding free zone.

“The power cut will end forever if we succeed providing power supply round the clock this year. We are facing the challenge with a high morale,” he said, “We need assistance and cooperation from all to succeed.”

Minister Sharma further said that he will take satisfaction from the happiness of the people following an end to the power cut.

“I am not in the race to take credit for no power cut. There are still huge challenges we need to face and accomplish them,” he said, “But, I am proud of appointing a qualified man like Ghising to the post.”

Minister Sharma has revealed with Nagarik Show on how the dream of providing uninterrupted power supply to Katmandu denizens 24 hours was achieved.
