    It would be another huge blow to the economy. Production and even services especially in the small and medium sector industries will be devastated. Miracle of Asia in action

    God knows, CEB thinks, "People will adjust to that if they announce early "
    What a wonderful country we live.

    this is what you call the Chinthanaya at its best!!!

    2 hours per day, businesses are going to suffer, people are going to suffer, but the fat politicians are having fun at our expenses with Generators, and a economic outlook that does and will not affect them!!!!

    When the power-hungry politicians have all the powers to do whatever within their powers and beyond, we poor consumers are powerless to do anything except to get shocks when the bill for power arrives.

    Game Over Monday, 23 July 2012 06:01 AM

    Not necessarily... The tanks are not filled up and we cannot meet the demand. The minister has to cook up some story to coverup his former statement of not having power cuts. this is only a coverup story for sure. In short, our planing sucks !

    Anil Monday, 23 July 2012 06:01 AM

    Norocholai was supposed to end all our troubles.Looks like the Chinese dumped obsolete plants on us.
