New Delhi: Protests over Delhi’s power outages continued even as the centre allocated more gas to a power plant to enable it double its production. Meanwhile, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal accused the centre of shielding the discoms.

“We have never seen such long power cuts, lasting up to 10-12 hours a day, due to which even the water supply has been affected. Our children are not able to prepare for their examinations,” a resident of the area said.

“It, however, appears the government is shying away from fixing the accountability of discoms and at times one gets an impression the government is trying to protect these discoms,” he wrote.
