He also has promised to move the country from the current state of erratic power cuts (dumsor) to a steady state of power supply and eventually to “the ideal state of uninterrupted power delivery.”

The Energy minister-designate flaunted his deep knowledge of the sector to the admiration of audience at the auditorium.
