“Situation is Critical,” said Kejriwal on Power Crisis

On Monday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the situation is critical and that the states are writing to the federal government about it. “We are all working together to fix the situation,” Kejriwal said to the media on Monday.

His statements came in the wake of recent reports of severe shortages in the National Capital as a result of a coal shortfall at power facilities around the country. Meanwhile, Delhi electricity minister Satyendar Jain spoke to the media on Monday about power supply concerns, claiming that there is a severe scarcity of coal in thermal power plants.

Arvind Kejriwal has previously stated on October 9 that “Delhi may face a power outage. Personally, I’m keeping a careful eye on the situation. We’re doing everything we can to avert that.” He even wrote Prime Minister Narendra Modi a letter in which he detailed the issue of coal shortages and requested his personal action. He also stated that coal shortages have been in effect since August and September, and that this is harming the power facilities that supply energy to Delhi.

Satyendar Jain, the Delhi Power Minister, has previously warned of a complete blackout in Delhi after two days, claiming that the power plants supplying electricity to the national capital lacked adequate coal supplies. Meanwhile, Power Minister RK Singh denied similar allegations on Sunday, claiming that there will be no power outage and that coal supplies will continue as usual. He also stated that government authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation and that no problems will occur.
