Inefficient Governement of Bangalore
I was reading a news article about why bangalore was experiencing the power cuts (load shedding). It talked about the financial constraints of buying power from the central grid to overcome the shortage of power. I wonder how come Bangalore which has one of the highest tax rates in the country in most of the things like, petrol (including other fuels), road tax, etc. experience financial resource constraints. It is forcing the city which is the power house in IT towards darkness. This only speaks about the inefficiency and wasteful expenses of the government. Today it is not even in a position to buy power from the central grid.
