It is a matter of amazement that a government, which claims that it has some concern for the well-being of the Guyanese people, would allow this unacceptable situation by the Guyana Power and Light to continue, Vice Chairman of the People’s National Congress Reform, Basil Williams, said yesterday.At a press conference, Williams said that GPL continues to limp along, undisturbed by the havoc it is visiting on all segments of the society. “Blackouts are the order of the day,Wholesale China Jerseys, disrupting businesses and plaguing the lives of the Guyanese people.”He added that the PNCR had on several occasions highlighted the dysfunctional nature of the GPL.He said that his party had recommended that there be a Commission of Inquiry into the workings and activities of this entity.“The Jagdeo Administration has turned a deaf ear to our recommendations, while turning a blind eye to the glaring deficiencies of GPL,” Williams said yesterday.The negative and disruptive impact of the blackouts,Cheap Jerseys From China, on the business sector and the reliability of supply of potable water, would not be a stimulus to action.It is well known, he said,Cheap NFL Football Jerseys, that the business community, especially the manufacturing sector, is under stress and blackouts are only reinforcing their jeopardy.At the household level, the unstable voltage fluctuations caused by the frequent and unpredictable blackouts, Williams added, are damaging the equipment in many of the homes of our citizens and,NFL Jerseys China, from all accounts, it is frustratingly difficult, if not impossible, for them to recoup the cost of such damage from GPL.Even while the GPL management is urging the public to undertake electricity conservation measures,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, the billing system continues to be unpredictable and erratic, he noted.“This, apart from being a disincentive to households, places undue burdens and stresses on our citizens, especially the old and the vulnerable.”Williams said that amid ‘rumours of massive fraud’ and the evident demonstrations of incompetence, soothing noises come from the management of GPL, either pleading for patience or asking for understanding.“Once again, as occurred on each previous occasion that new generators have been acquired, we are promised that, with the installation of the newly acquired generators, our blackout woes would be over.”Perhaps, as is usual, “whenever the crescendo of public dissatisfaction and protest rises, citizens would be bombarded with the propaganda about how much has been spent and how much the new generators represent, as if this is a substitute for the supply of reliable, stable and affordable electricity from GPL,” Williams said.There is undoubtedly a compelling case for resolute action, the PNCR Vice Chairman said yesterday, whilst calling on the Jagdeo Administration to act now.Last week, Chairman of the GPL board,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, Winston Brassington, said that the constant power outages that are being experienced, are as a result of a number of the GPL units being problematic.Brassington had also said that the current problems being experienced is the worst the company has seen for the year.Only recently, Chief Executive Officer of GPL, Bharrat Dindyal, had said that the frequent power outages experienced by consumers, are likely to be significantly reduced soon with the acquisition of three new generators.The generators were acquired at the cost of US$30M through funding by PETRO-CARIBE.Dindyal claimed that with the arrival of the generators, the capacity will be significantly increased.However, despite this reassurance, consumers have been hard hit with constant power outages over the past two weeks.
