New Delhi. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal again raised the issue of coal shortage on Saturday, though Union Power Minister RK Singh said Delhi’s power supply companies would continue to get electricity as per the requirement. The Delhi government has warned of disruption in power supply, citing shortage of coal in various power stations. On the sidelines of an event, Kejriwal told reporters, “We (Delhi government) are managing the electricity supply in Delhi. Due to shortage of coal, this problem is in front of the whole country.
According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Power, the Union Power Minister reviewed the availability of coal in thermal power plants and other thermal power plants supplying electricity to Delhi. According to the statement, “The minister has directed the power distribution companies of Delhi that they will get electricity as per the demand.”
Tata Power Delhi Distribution Corporation (TPDDL) said in a statement that it is monitoring the availability of coal in those power stations with which it has a long standing agreement. “To ensure uninterrupted supply of power and in view of the additional demands, TPDDL has recently entered into an agreement for 150 MW of additional power from the first week of May to July 31,” the statement said.
