The call to go dark for 9 min at 9 pm on the 5th can have deep impact on the grid: Jairam Ramesh

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Saturday expressed concern over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for switching off lights for nine minutes on Sunday night, saying it could deeply impact the power grid stability.

The former union minister hoped that the government is managing the grid well for the lighting call.

"As somebody who has been associated with the power sector for almost three decades including as minister, the call to go dark for 9 min at 9 pm on the 5th can have deep impact on the grid and its stability. I sincerely hope this is being properly managed," Mr Ramesh said on Twitter.
