Since it would take some time for the state to evict power from chhattisgarh because there is no direct transmission
line for the same Jagan gave some idea to the state CM. According to his idea he says Telangana government can give the power purchased in Chhattisgarh to NTPC by injecting it to the National Grid and utilize an equal amount of it generated at NTPC’s 2,6000 MW Ramagundam station where 75% goes to the central pool. Jagan also added saying that this process could also resolve the row over srisailam water used for power generation by Telangana.
Opposition leader of AP also added that Telangana could take additional power from Chhattisgarh by swapping with
National grid from the second phase draws of 1000mw of Simhadri station which accounted the central pool of 60%. This could help overcome the demand supply gap.
To the controversy over utilization of Srisailam water,the YSRCP president said late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has raised the minimum draw down level in the reservoir to 854 feet in 2004 to rectify a mistake committed by the TDP regime in the past so as to enable draw water to several projects. Ignoring this fact. Ap chief fixed the MDDL at 834 feet in 1996.
