Directs officials not to impose power cuts


Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy on Tuesday has directed the officials to ensure that there were no power cuts or load shedding in domestic and other sectors except industries. He reviewed the position from New Delhi over telephone with the officials and made it clear that seven hours of quality and reliable power should be supplied to farm sectors according to a press release from the CMO's office.

He also gave directions to hold sub station level meetings and monitor day to day power position by involving farmers and consumers of that area to ensure reliable supply to both agricultural and domestic sectors. He expressed his dissatisfaction over the explanation given by the District Collector of Medak on the burning up of a dried up paddy crop by a farmers if Aurangabad village, he asked the Collector to conduct an enquiry whether the power was supplied for seven hours or not for the entire village and submit a detailed report.

As of now there were no scheduled power cuts on other sectors except intermittent load shedding only when there was an emergency in the grid due to forced outrage of units. The release further said that 300 MW was expected from next month first week from Vijayawada Thermal Power Station and another 600 MW from May 15 from Gowthami and Konaseema power units.
