Lack of proper planning

Comment on "Power cuts worst for smaller businesses" (China Daily, April 28)

Since the government is doing its best to ensure that economic growth does not slow down, more electrical appliances are being sold in the market. This is pushing up electricity consumption, especially with summer months upon us.

The authorities seem to have not taken this factor into consideration in their plans. This has become a typical and disturbing trait among some of the officials.

More detailed planning and more effective implementation is needed to tide over the problem. The authorities should pay more attention to power shortage because it could undermine economic growth.
