SLDC official bribed by private hydropower companies: Dy Mayor, Shimla

On Beas River Tragedy, Tikendar Panwar in a letter to HC said,

“The share of less production could have been borne by many state hydropower producers, including the public sector and private companies. But, the state load dispatch centre, which is responsible to shed the load, asked only Larji, a public sector company, for a complete shutdown. Why? Simply because there have been indication of the state load dispatch centre officials, allegedly bribed by private (hydro companies). Each of the private and public sector companies could have been asked to at least shut one turbine and the desired result (less production) could have been achieved.” ~ IANS
