first_imgAs Madhya Pradesh continues to reel under frequent and unscheduled power cuts, officials of the state electricity company are holding bats responsible for the woes, claiming that the flying mammals are causing faults in the supply lines, especially in the state capital. They say bats hanging on the power supply lines sometimes cause short circuits, which ultimately lead to outages. This claim has triggered a fresh round of blame game between the Kamal Nath-led Congress government and the opposition, BJP. The saffron party said instead of giving these excuses, the power utility and the state government should work in a responsible manner, while the ruling Congress said there was no crisis as MP is a power surplus state. State Energy Minister Priyavrat Singh, however, contended that overloaded power transformers and not bats could be the main reason behind the problem. Talking to PTI, the minister said, “In a review meeting of Bhopal district (held on June 14), an official of the power company had said that bats are creating faults in the supply lines along the lake (Upper Lake)…But I don’t think this is a major reason. I pulled up the official, who had said so.”“I told the official to repair the supply lines by insulating them. This work had already been carried out. I asked the officials to consider installation of ultrasonic devices, after due environment clearances, in the areas where bats are creating problems,” he added.Mr. Singh said there were several others reasons that might be behind the faults in supply lines.“At some places, a squirrel may create a problem. But the main reason of fault is overloaded power transformers. Maintenance of power supply lines was neglected for years. I asked the officials to carry out proper maintenance of the distribution lines,” he said. Spokesperson of Madhya Pradesh Central Power Distribution Company Ltd, Manoj Dwivedi, said, “The faults in power supply lines in the vicinity of Upper Lake (in Bhopal) were reported due to bats. This largely happens due to short- circuits caused by bats hanging on the power supply lines.” The company carries out work of insulation in such cases, he said.“That area of Bhopal had bats earlier too, but power supply used to be uninterrupted. Instead of giving excuses, the power company as well as the government should work responsibly. Were the bats born only after the Congress came to power?” state BJP spokesman Rajnish Agrawal said. The Congress government had earlier said that poor quality of transformers purchased during the previous BJP dispensation was the reason behind the electricity issues. During the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections in April this year, Chief Minister Kamal Nath had alleged that there was a conspiracy behind the power cuts in the state. At that time, state Finance Minister Tarun Bhanot had also said that some officials of the power distribution company were working against the ruling Congress, resulting in power outages.“During the campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections, Nath, in order to hide his government’s failure, used to blame the BJP and certain officials for power cuts. But even after the polls, outages continued in every part of the state despite it being a power surplus state,” Mr. Agrawal said. He said that inept handling by the Congress government has created this crisis. However, the state Congress said that the BJP had run out of issues and was raising hue and cry over such “non-issues“.“Pre-monsoon maintenance is a routine process and it was happening during the BJP rule as well. The technical faults are being repaired. MP is a power surplus state and there is no crisis. Opposition is spreading lies,” state Congress spokesman Pankaj Chaturvedi said.“Due to factionalism within the BJP, the leaders of that party are trying to outdo each other and levelling false allegations,” he added.last_img read more

first_imgT-Mobile’s delayed US home TV service is due to launch in the first half of this year, the company confirmed on its fourth quarter 2018 earnings call.Responding to a question about the company’s TV strategy, chief operating officer Mike Sievert said T-Mobile is “quality-driven”, not “date-driven,” adding that its TV service rollout is closely tied to its home broadband strategy.“Those two can operate independently of each other, but they really operate well in concert in our future plans – particularly in the context of the New T-Mobile where we have very ambitious home broadband plans,” he said.Also speaking on the call, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that the company would start to pilot home broadband offers in 2019 using 4G LTE and later 5G, with plans to offer broadband to 52% of US zip codes.Initially T-Mobile will be testing its broadband and TV services separately, but Legere said that the ultimate strategy is for home TV and home broadband to be a “blended go-to-market approach”.T-Mobile’s TV service was originally due to launch in late 2018 and will be powered by Layer3, the TV technology company it acquired in December 2017.Sievert said that T-Mobile is getting “great learnings” from customers in four cities where it has already launched a predecessor product under the Layer3 TV brand. It plans to use this feedback to add improvements before rebranding and rolling it out as its home TV offering.“Every single media brand either has or is developing an OTT solution and most of these companies don’t have a way to bring these products to market,” said Sievert. “They don’t have distributed networks like us, they don’t have access to the phones like we have.”“We don’t have plans to develop an undifferentiated skinny bundle,” he added. “We think there’s a more nuanced role for us to play in helping you get access to the great media brands out there that you love, and to be able to put together your own media subscription in smaller pieces – US$5, US$6, US$7, US$8 at a time.”At the time of its Layer3 takeover, T-Mobile announced plans for a “disruptive new TV service” aimed at people who are “tired of all the BS that comes bundled with big cable and satellite TV”.last_img read more
