Kiran responsible for power crisis: Sharmila

Wadapally (Nalgonda Dt),
Feb 23, 2013: Smt. Y. S. Sharmila on Saturday took the Kiran Kumar Reddy-led
Congress Government to task for not envisaging the power crisis in the state in

Interacting with locals
at a Rachchabanda programme at Wadapally in Nalgonda district on the 72nd
day of her Padayatra, Sharmila said the Government has been subjecting the
villages and hamlets to untold suffering by not supplying power even for three hours
a day.

She was reacting to
comments and complaints by locals that their lives have become miserable in the
absence of power supply for most part of the day. Though the participants in
the Rachchabanda interaction talked about the drinking water problems and other
local issues, complaints on lack of power supply mostly dominated the session.

“The Government has
miserably failed to foresee the power crisis and take preventive steps to
improve the situation,” she said, adding that CM Kiran Kumar Reddy was
responsible for the present power crisis.

During YSR regime,
other states used to buy power from AP but we are not in a position even to buy
power from other states now, Smt. Sharmila said. “This distress is the result
of mishandling of the situation by Kiran Kumar.”

She however instilled
confidence among the locals saying that YSR Congress President Sri. Y.S. Jagan
Mohan Reddy has excellent plans to solve the power crisis.
