Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson yesterday received an unannounced visit from several persons, including activist Don Singh, who gathered in front of his Wight’s Lane, Kingston office, to protest against the frequent power outages currently being experienced.
The protestors expressed their frustration with the incompetence of Guyana Power and Light Inc. (GPL) – which they labelled ‘GPHELL’ – and the company’s constant efforts to hoodwink the public by using technical terminology such as ‘line maintenance’ and ‘load shedding’ to describe the lengthy, maddening blackouts that are being experienced on a daily basis. They also stressed that electricity is a right, not a privilege.
Minister Patterson in response expressed empathy with those present and gave assurances that urgent steps are being taken to address the situation.
