Why UPSEB battled to hold Railways hostage to its own line?
Today came to know that in 1993 the Central Cabinet approved the Indian Railway’s plan to have its own transmission line from the Dadari plant of National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).
But construction of the line was badly delayed because Uttar Pradesh State Electricity Board (UPSEB), another government department, filed a court case against Railways for daring to have its own transmission line. The case went right up to the Supreme Court where Railways won.
In this story, in which every actor is government-owned, is hidden the story of your poverty, of your unemployed son, of the endless wait of your daughter for an eligible groom, and if you cannot figure out the story, you are actually the author of the story and deserve all that is happening to you.
(Why UPSEB wanted to hold Railways hostage to its own line? To fleece Railways to pay for its own corruption, inefficiency, and to pay for the freebie circus of the politicians and theft by their vote banks. And you will also simultaneously weep for high fares of Railways.)
