Power cut in Bengal assembly, Trinamool orders probe

Dec 12 2012, 5:58am CST | by

Kolkata, Dec 12 (IANS) Sniffing a conspiracy behind a power failure during the assembly session Wednesday, West Bengal Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee ordered an inquiry into the matter.

Kolkata, Dec 12 — Sniffing a conspiracy behind a power failure during the assembly session Wednesday, West Bengal Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee ordered an inquiry into the matter.

While Power Minister Manish Gupta was answering a question raised by a Congress member about subsidy on electricity, the power went off for five minutes, resulting in the speaker ordering adjournment of the house till electricity supply was restored.

"We have information that there was no such power failure either in the Calcutta High Court or the Raj Bhavan that time. Power to both the buildings, including the assembly, is supplied from the same source," Chatterjee told mediapersons here.

"The power failed immediately after Left Front members staged a walk out. There is a need to inquire as to why there was a power failure," said Chatterjee.

In the wake of Tuesday's scuffle between Trinamool Congress members and the opposition Left Front legislators in the assembly which resulted in three members getting injured and three others being suspended, Chatterjee said: "Security personnel failed to provide security to the members. We will also inquire why they were mute spectators when the demand of the hour for them was to prevent the fracas."

"Speaker Biman Banerjee has named an official to conduct the twin inquiries and submit a reports within seven days," added Chatterjee.
