Official says power completely restored in India

No more blackouts --- that was the message from India's new power minister a day after an electricity grid failure left more than 670 million people in the dark. SOUNDBITE: M. Veerappa Moily, India's new power minister saying: "One hundred percent restoration has taken place. And I can reassure the entire nation that what has happened in the last two-three days, will not recur back in the country." It isn't clear what caused the three of the country's five power grids to fail. Some blamed states for taking more than their allotment of electricity while others pointed to monsoon rains. The, power failure, one of the world's worst, affected more than half of India's population. Deborah Gembara, Reuters
