Bats are the reason behind power cuts in Madhya Pradesh, say officials in Kamal Nath government

"Bats hang upside down from electric wires, due to which the wires stick together and cause power failures," say senior officials in the power department in MP government

According to the latest revelations by the Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh, bats are responsible for the rampant power cuts in the state. As per reports, officers in the Kamal Nath government have claimed that the tiny flying mammals are the reason the state is reeling under a power supply crisis.

Madhya Pradesh has been suffering from frequent and rampant power cuts since months. As the harsh summer keeps the mercury high, frequent power cuts in the state have made life unbearable for people in the state.

The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh has only been indulging in blame game over the issue of power cuts. Initially, the Kamal Nath government had claimed that the previous BJP government had installed faulty generators. Then they had stated through official communications that human intervention by BJP’s people in power department is causing the power cuts.

Finally, they had now blamed the fruit-eating mammals for the power failures in the state. Recently, when power minister Priyavrat Singh visited the senior officials at the power department, they reportedly argued that bats hang upside down from electric wires, due to which the wires stick together and cause power failures.

The argument was even reportedly published in an official statement. However, Priyavrat Singh has reportedly clarified that he does not believe it.

Singh has reportedly asked for the formation of technical teams to examine transformers. He has also asked senior-level officials to frequently tour their respective areas and for the formation of WhatsApp groups for junior engineer level employees for better communication and problem-solving.

Priyavrat Singh was quoted by Aaj Tak saying that he has learned from officers in the department that there are a large number of bats living in old Bhopal area, causing frequent power failures.

Singh then stated that he has asked the officials to keep bats away from the wires and at the same time take care of the environment.

He also stated that he has asked the officers to install ultrasonic devices and work on insulating the wires and keeping the transformers from overloading.

Former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has stated that the Kamal Nath government has lost its mental balance.

It is notable here that in 2003, power cuts were one of the main issues that had caused Congress’ catastrophic loss in the state elections. In the last 15 years of BJP rule, the power cuts were reportedly never a serious issue and the state saw mostly uninterrupted supply.

Madhya Pradesh’s power cuts have recently gained much attention on social media after Urdu poet Rahat Indori had taken to Twitter to complain about frequent power cuts.
