Naidu calls for Chief Secretary to save industries, farmers in Andhra from power crisis

Amaravati: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) National President N Chandrababu Naidu urged the Chief Secretary to take prompt action so as to save the industrial, agricultural, and service sectors by guaranteeing reliable power supply.

Naidu emphasized the importance of addressing the severe problem of power outages in order to protect people's livelihoods and standard of living. In a letter to the Chief Secretary of Andhra Pradesh, the TDP leader stated that any administration must prioritise the power sector because of its critical role in industrial development and the state economy.

"However, the state electricity sector has been completely destroyed in the last three years as a result of the state government's rash actions and lack of planning. Andhra Pradesh had a power shortage of 22.5 million units in 2014, following the state reorganization "he stated. "By 2019, the state has attained surplus status as a result of reforms and incentives. The installed capacity has expanded from 9,529 MW to 19,160 MW at this time. As a result, the state became one of the country's three power surplus states. 

Naidu said, the government announced at the time that present tariffs would not be raised and that there would be no power cuts. "At the same time, agreements for 25 years at the lowest purchasing rates in the country were struck with solar, wind, and other non-conventional energy businesses." He said, the TDP government planned to increase power generation to match demand till 2024, but the YCP administration failed to do so.
