Power returns to Bartica
-residents upset at Dindyal’s remarks
Power returned to Bartica yesterday afternoon, but residents said they were shocked earlier when Guyana Power and Light Inc Chief Executive Officer Bharat Dindyal called them lazy, telling them that what they pay is but a fraction of the cost of the fuel required to run the generators that supply them with electricity.
Several residents told this newspaper that Dindyal made the remarks when he visited Bartica yesterday morning, after two days of protest prompted by constant power outages in the community. Numerous calls to Dindyal by this newspaper went unanswered yesterday.
