Load-shedding to continue: SC
The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to issue an order to the government authorities, including the Nepal Electricity Authority, to withdraw its decision to impose load-shedding.A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justices Kedar Prasad Giri and Justice Min Bahadur Rayamajhi refused to issue the order, saying that production of electricity depends on level and discharge of water.“The production of electricity is based on flow and level of water. Since the level and flow cannot be controlled, there is no need for the apex court to intervene in the matter,” the bench observed. Challenging the government decision to impose load-shedding, advocate Bhupendra Prasad Pokhrel had filed a writ petition a few days ago.
