Electricity department is working to provide power through underground cable. But this is getting delayed because of the Finance department, the Power Minister Nilesh Cabral underfire for the long delays in restoring electricity after the cyclone said on Tuesday. The Finance department wants to curtail expenditure on laying of underground cable project. Ironically Nilesh said that he is ready to arrange funds if government has no money.

Power Minister Nilesh Cabral gave example of underground cable laying work from Sancaole sub-station to Zuari Nagar.  The file was sent to finance department for approval. However, finance department sent it back and asked power department to re-send it after putting it for vote of account. Nilesh wanted the Chief Minister to see why this is happening.
