RIO DE JANEIRO, December 03, 6:10 /ITAR-TASS/. A considerable part of Venezuela including the capital Caracas sank into darkness Monday night.
Venevision TV channel said at its official website the states of Aragua, Vargas, Carabobo, Lara, Miranda, Zulia, and Falcon had been fully disconnected from power supplies.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro warned recently that the opposition was plotting acts of sabotage at power industry installations to destabilize the situation in the country and to deal a blow to the transformations carried out as part of a course at building the Bolivarian socialism.
This course envisions implementation of a number of social programs in favor of the poorest sections of the population, as well as tough control over the operations of retail chains and the imposition of restrictions on prices by the government.
