Power Minister Piyush Goyal was addressing a conference at the Press Information Bureau in New Delhi.
The conference was held for the launch of a book ‘Ujjwal Bharat – Two Years’, which highlights the achievements of the Power Ministry since the Modi government came to power.
Ironically, the power minister’s conference was interrupted by a power snag even before the minister could begin speaking.
While he was speaking, the lights in the PIB went off for a brief moment.
By now the quick thinking MoS knew he had to handle the situation, so he started telling the audience how his wife thought the power should go once in a while when he was speaking.
And while he was speaking, the lights went off a third time, this time for two long minutes.
Undaunted, Goyal kept his composure intact through the around two-hour-long conference.
