Former Minister Dr. P. Shankar Rao threatened State Government warning to picket Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy’s residence if it fails to resolve the power problem within next 48 hours. Expressing solidarity to TRS leaders at Bollaram Police station who were arrested at Vidyut Soudha for staging dharna over power crisis, Shankar Rao said that farmers in the State are facing huge problems mainly due to inefficient government.
“Power shortage in the State cropped up mainly due to Chief Minister’s lack of foresightedness and inefficient handling of matters. Government shiuld honour its promise of supplying quality power of seven hours to farmers. Government is also showing discrimination towards farmers from Telangana region by supplying power to Seemandhra region. CM should promise to complete all pending power based projects on war footing basis from the region to tide over the crisis,” Shankar Rao added.
