The newly appointed Telangana Power minister C. Lakshma Reddy assumed the office on Thursday. Talking to the reporters about the government strategy to make TS power surplus in three years, he said that the government has made short term, midterm and long term plans to make the state surplus.
“We have devised plans to cross 20,000 MW in three years. By June 2015, we will get 300 MW from central generating stations. Another 1200 MW from Singareni and 600 MW from Bhupalapally by August 2015 and another 600 MW from Singareni by 2015-end. In this way, we will add 2,600 MW by 2015-end. The minister clarified.
When asked about the news that the AP government was ready to power sharing, he said that he has not received any official information yet, but if at all any such news existed, it was a welcome step.
He also said that the TS government was ready to power sharing with the AP government as per AP state reorganization Act, when the state became power surplus in 2-3 years.
