Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has warned his counterpart AP CM Chandrababu Naidu to “drag” him to Supreme Court in ongoing power issue. In a scathing attack, KCR alleged that Naidu turned down the guidelines of APERC (Electricity Regulatory Commission for both AP, Telangana). KCR said that Naidu is “flouting” the norms and going “against” to AP Reorganization act. KCR addressed media on Friday night after two-and-a- half hour long cabinet meeting.
Heaping criticism on Naidu, KCR said that Naidu is doing “foul” play in power sharing and “deliberately” denying power to Telangana from Lower Sileru, Vizag Hinduja and Krishnapatnam power plants. KCR, “We’re going to file a Special Leave Petition in Supreme Court against AP Government soon.” KCR urged PM Narendra Modi to intervene into the issue immediately and “see to it” that AP Reorganization Act is implemented in its true spirit.
KCR, however, made it clear that there was no “question” of stopping power generation from Srisailam until power demand for agriculture in Telangana is fully met. With this, KCR once again opened a can of worms against Chandrababu and blamed him for the power crisis in Telangana.
