The Chief Minister of Telangana K Chandrasekhara Rao announced on Friday that he would meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi soon to clear the ongoing despair on power between the two Telugu states.
K Chandrasekhara Rao said that the responsibility to implement the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act held with the Centre. He went on to threaten to deny any share to AP from the upcoming power projects in the state if AP continues the violation of AP Reorganisation Act 2014.
KCR said in the Assembly, “As per the Act, power has to be shared between TS and AP in the ratio of 54:46. Under this Telangana is eligible for 2,700 MW from AP and AP is entitled to 2,000 MW from Telangana. If AP refuses to give TS its share we will hit back. If AP agrees to this we will get 2,700 MW. Or else we will have our own 2,000 MW within a year from the new plants in Bhoopalapally and Adilabad”.
Speaking about the state’s further plans, KCR said, “We have also readied a petition to be filed in the Supreme Court against AP. This will be done if the Centre fails to implement the Act”.
