Talk: 'The Truth Behind Power Deals in India'
"The Truth Behind Power Deals in India" was the theme of a talk by Abhay Mehta, author of the controversial and critically acclaimed book "Power Play", a book on the Enron saga. This talk was organised by ESG in collaboration with the Association of British Scholars at The British Council Library, Bangalore on 25 February 2000 and a similar talk held on the 26th February at Dr. Shivarama Karanth Hall of Mangalore University in collaboration with Consumers Forum (Basrur and Mangalore) and Janajagriti Samithi of Nandikur (Udupi). The talks were widely covered by the media and helped influence a debate for transparency in the Karnataka power sector.
