With a slew of odds including financial crunch, lack of investments, lack of employment besides the ambiguity over capital Amaravati and its projects, Andhra Pradesh is battling alone. Jagan, who had good relations with Telangana CM KCR, was granted required aid from the neighboring state. Be it water resources or power resources there has been kith and kin between these two Cms.
The truncated state is now facing coal shortage which in turn is affecting the power supply that is crucial for investments and companies to set up their plants in the state when already, reverse tendering of Polavaram and renegotiation of PPAs have sent wrong signals to investors of the state.
AP CM YS Jagan has written a letter to his Telangana counterpart KCR as affecting the daily power supply, coal shortage looms large in AP. To increase the daily supply of coal to AP from the Singareni coal mines is what it is written in the letter by the AP government as a request to KCR. Four rakes of coal a day are being supplied to AP currently. However, this is insufficient.
For this, Jagan asked KCR to increase it to 9 rakes of coal supply a day. AP state government admitted that a series of incidents have pushed it to coal shortage for Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO). Never before such shortage had occurred in AP as it is adequately equipped in general.
Chandrababu is the one who battled every possible minute with KCR saying he was the one behind Hyderabad’s development. One can’t expect Chandrababu to take the aid of KCR in this situation like Jagan. As far it was concerned, Jagan’s healthy relationship with KCR done well for AP so far.
