TRS to protest tomorrow against power crisis

HYDERABAD: Lashing out at the ruling Congress government for the power crisis in Andhra Pradesh, the TRS on Sunday said it would hold protests in Telangana region on Monday against frequent power outages.

“The long power cuts in the state are a result of the inefficiency of the state government…It lacks foresight,” Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao said in a media release.

TRS cadres would organise road blockades in all mandal headquarters on Monday, he said.

“The farmers of Telangana are already in trouble due to deficient rainfall. Their woes are further compounded by the erratic power supply,” the TRS chief said.

He demanded that the state government offset the shortfall by purchasing power immediately and ensure uninterrupted supply to farmers and small industries. [PTI]
