Chandra Babu said AP Government would like to resolve issues with Telangana Peacefully
In a Press Conference Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said he was ready for an open discussion about the prevailing power crisis in the new Telangana state even as he criticised the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) government for creating a controversy over every issue.
“Telangana state is unable to handle its power woes. It cannot blame Andhra Pradesh for its inability. Andhra Pradesh has made long-term agreements to reduce power deficit.
Telangana has power problems. Andhra Pradesh has agreed to give 300 MW of power to Telangana state,” He said that farmers in Telangana suffer due to the power crisis. Hence, Andhra Pradesh has agreed to give 300 MW of electricity to Telangana to bail out farmers from power woes.
Chandra babu Naidu said his government would like to resolve all issues with Telangana “peacefully” with mutual co-operation.
Referring to the Telangana government’s refusal to stop power generation in the Srisailam Left Power House (LPH), as water in the reservoir fell to the minimum storage level of 857.6 feet, the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister said the LPH could be operationalised only when surplus water is available in the river.
“They are violating rules and blaming me for the power crisis in Telangana. It is unwarranted. I am ready for an open discussion on this issue,” Naidu said.
