    Kerala model of growth - a rain drenched state has water in reservoirs that will suffice to generate power for 3 more days only. How is Gujarat with semi-desert condition able to generate excess power.

    Make NaMo PM of India already.

    Power crisis acute, says Aryadan

    Says water in reservoirs will suffice to generate power for 3 more days only

    Minister for Electricity Aryadan Mohammed has said that the State was reeling under severe power crisis and the water remaining in the reservoirs for power generation will last for three more days only.

    The Minister was speaking after inaugurating the Peechi Small hydel project on Monday.

    “The average power consumption in the State has been estimated as 56 million units. But the State’s current production is only 10 million units.

    “The Kerala State Electricity Board has been incurring a huge annual loss of Rs.2,400 crore for sourcing power from various agents,” the Minister said.

    He said the State had to improve its power generation at any cost.

    “People should cooperate with power projects, which can be constructed with minimum damage to the environment. People’s protest has been creating hurdles for every attempt of the government to augment power production,” he said.

    Conservation of energy was the most cost effective solution to energy shortage, he said.

    “Energy saved is energy produced. Saving of energy is the need of the hour as the demand has gone up steeply while the generation remained limited,” he said. The government had started steps to install solar panel in 10,000 houses, the Minister said.

    Work on the Peechi Small hydel project, which started in November, 2010, was completed in November 2012.

    Kerala is an example of how the people of a rich land can ruin themselves through arrogance. It is the land of my birth but I have nothing but contempt for a people that has no self esteem and are lazy good for nothing commies who think they are the intellectual cream of the country. For Kerala to change it has to collapse first. I really hope that one day there is bloodshed and a revolution thats the only hope for change.

    No sense of responsibility....
    In the Nehruvian "system" the state is the mai-baap>>will/should provide from the cradle to the grave/pyre . More importantly the socialist model rewards mediocrity, punishes excellence/innovation/creativity/improvisation and forgives failure/idleness/lazyness.

    Things in Poshchim Bongoul and Keral have to get totally shyte-shaped before the naive, idealistic and delusional locals get over their fixation for the failed marxist model foisted upon them by their parents and grandparents .

    I have been telling this from my very first day here that Keralan model is over-rated and it would collapse in the long run.

    Here just look at the installed capacities of the power in TN and Kerala,

    http://www.cea.nic.in/reports/monthly/inst_capacity/jun12.pdf

    TN has four times more power generation than Kerala , catering to two times the population of Kerala, and it does not include the 2000MW of nuclear power to be generated in Kudankulam(it is to be raised to 6000MW but anyway) or the other thermal plants going active by the middle of the year.

    And still TN has a huge shortage of power thanks to the heavy demand from Industrialisation while Kerala has no such thing as power shortage. So seriously, what industrialisation has Kerala undertaken?

    the biggest problem of socialism is that once it is established, you cant get rid of it, even if you realise the obvious problems associated with it! Because by that time, people would have been too dependant on the govt for everything. This is also the reason it leads to elitism, and it is a pretty neat way to keep the people under youur knees. No wonder the elites of upper class love this philosophy-eternal power under the guise of sham equality!

    Kerala and WB are lost beyond saving. What can happen though is that we can learn from their mistakes and make sure that we dont repeat their mistakes! I also recommend re-writing the History(now dominated by socialist non-sense) depicting truth regarding Socialism so that future generation is also saved from that menace.

    When the governing authority(System) is capable and powerful enough to provide for everything that a person might need, then it is also capable and powerful enough to take everything away from the same individual.

    When it comes to politics Indians are complete and total suckers. This generation however has the advantage of near instantaneous information dissemination that their parents and grandparents did not have.

    Thats only true because we saw what our parents were like in the socialist era and the differences now. The same can not be said for the future generatioin, who will be fed with Socialist non-sense(if we dont stop it), and will have no idea on what life was like during the socialist era and will buy all the crap that will be sold to them in their books! The impact of having leftist influence in the books will be visible only after it is too late.

    I mean look at the present day America:tsk:

    Kerala generates only 10 million units and consumes 56 million units

    That is basically Kerala buys power from neighboring states

    A bad situation has become worse because of inadequate rainfall
