After worst blackout in global history, India's power minister rates his performance as "Excellent"

About 10% of the world was without power when a massive blackout hit India this week. Power has mostly been restored, and so has the hubris of the officials responsible. From the WaPo: "Asked to rate his performance as India’s power minister, Sushilkumar Shinde responded emphatically Wednesday: 'Excellent,' he declared with a confident smile and a wave of his hand." Veerappa Moily, who replaced Shinde in the Power Ministry after a cabinet reshuffle, was equally ready to deny blame. “We are very proud," Moily told the Post. "We have an excellent system. Maybe there were certain localized features.” (Washington Post)
