Power reforms

This is with reference to the editorial "Switching on reforms" (Business Line, May 8). It rightly points out the need to prevent political favours in the power sector. This can be ensured by the active participation of private players in the sector. The passing of the Electricity Bill in the Rajya Sabha with the support of the Congress (I) is a step in the right direction. It should be ensured that the Standing Committee's recommendations are included in the Bill before it is introduced in the Lok Sabha.

In the meantime, sufficient provisions should be made in the bill to consider subsidies and concessions to the agricultural sector, wherever necessary and on a case-to-case basis.
