Why did the blackout occur?

From Manager, May 23, 2013
Man on the left: I plant bombs in the three Southern provinces to seek opportunity for separation… What do you want from cutting off electricity in the South?
Man on the right [is it Energy Minister Pongsak Raktapongpaisal?]: To make up an excuse to have a coal power plant constructed.
Caption: New southern insurgent… looks Chinese!

[Reference is to the electricity blackout in 14 provinces in the South on May 21. Local Provincial Electricity Authority officials reported that it was because of lightning.
However, skeptics believe it is a government conspiracy to create an excuse to build more coal-powered generating plants in the South. These plants have been vigorously resisted by locals.]
