Babu’s Smart Counter Attack To KCR
The tussle for ‘power’ between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh hit a new low on Wednesday.
Stating it did not want to honour the power distribution formula as guaranteed in the AP Reorganization Act, Andhra Pradesh tried to retain the power produced by its thermal and hydel stations and deprive Telangana of 460 MW the latter is entitled to.
However, Telangana sought central intervention and got the move stayed.
According to officials, AP decided to reduce the power supply to Telangana as a tit-for-tat measure for the latter denying 10 TMC drinking water to Krishna, Guntur and Prakasam districts from the Nagarjunasagar last week.
