Power Minister G Jagadish Reddy today asserted that there would be no power supply, production and generation problems in the state.
The minister was speaking in the context of the power supply problems at the national level, especially in North India.
Reddy claimed that Telangana had abundant coal resources and power generation capacity to meet its needs, and that the state was fully capable of meeting the current demand of 16,000 MW a day.
"The power being generated in Telangana at Srisailam, Nagarjuna Sagar, Kothagudem and Manuguru is sufficient for our requirements. We have taken all necessary measures and have formed a circuit to ensure hassle-free supply of power to Hyderabad and other districts. We are ready to tackle any situation and our state will not suffer any power problems. We may face problems only if the Centre brings in new laws and tries to take over our projects," he said.
He said that he was apprehensive that the Centre might create power supply problems in Telangana in trying to solve its own issues at the national level.
"The Centre's problems are self-created. It should not try to take over the rights of the states on power issues, and it should stop dictating terms to the states," Reddy said.
