Angry CM Revanth Warns Energy Officials of Suspension

Energy Department Officials On High Alert

Sudden Power Outages in Several Places

Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has warned that strict action will be initiated against responsible officials and staff if power outages are reported in the state. He made it clear that the government is supplying adequate power to meet the energy demand, and no official power cuts will be imposed. The Chief Minister stated that the electricity supply has already been increased in the state compared to the past and expressed his anger at the officials of the Energy Department over recent power outages in many places. The CM expressed displeasure at some officials for neglecting their duties sincerely.

CM Revanth Reddy stated that it has come to his notice that some people are conspiring to tarnish the government's reputation by spreading misinformation about power supply. He warned of strict action against such officers and staff and urged Energy officials to counter the misinformation campaign on power cuts despite the increase in electricity supply.

The Chief Minister grilled the officials about the ongoing campaign on power cuts before reviewing the ‘Gruha Jyoti’ and ‘Rs.500 cooking gas cylinder supply’ schemes at the Secretariat. TRANSCO and GENCO CMD Rizvi explained to the CM that power supply has increased in the last two months compared to the corresponding period last year. The TRANSCO CMD mentioned that power supply was interrupted for some time in the limits of three sub-stations in the state recently. When the CM inquired about the reasons for power cuts, officials informed him that the DEs are supposed to monitor the load fluctuations in the sub-stations properly, and the problem arose due to their failure to do so.

The Chief Minister ordered strict action against officials and staff who discharged their duties carelessly. He asked the officials to inform consumers in the area of the respective sub-stations in advance if power supply is suspended for any repairs or other maintenance issues. The CM warned that he had gathered information about some field-level staff, who were appointed during the previous government, deliberately imposing power cuts to tarnish the government's reputation. The officials have been instructed to investigate the reasons behind power cuts if the supply is interrupted for more than 5 minutes anywhere in the state. Action should be taken against anyone who deliberately caused power cuts, except for technical and natural reasons.

The government has taken all measures to provide adequate power supply to meet the growing energy demand in the state. An action plan has already been prepared to supply power during the peak season of February, March, and April when the demand for electricity is high. 264.95 million units of electricity were supplied per day from February 1st to 13th this year. Last year, the power supply during the same period was only 242.44 million units. In January last year, 230.54 million units of power were supplied. This year, it was more than 243.12 million units in January.
