In the wake of criticism from Opposition parties that corruption was rampant in the Transco and Genco, Prabhakar Rao told the media today that there was no pressure from anyone.
“We are working for supplying uninterrupted power to farm sector and people, industry as per requirements”, he said. As per the directive of the government, the power utilities will work to ensure power supply to the society, he added. Any decision taken by them will only for welfare of the people, Prabhakar Rao asserted.
He also said paddy production in the State has increased to 60 lakh tons in 2018-19 as against 45 lakh tons in 2014-15. “For this, we supplied uninterrupted power supply without increasing power charges, Rao added.
