Coal stock of only two days in Maharashtra
Maharashtra is moving towards darkness (Power Crisis in Maharashtra). The coal stock is left in the state for only two days. The thermal power plants of the state do not have coal to generate electricity. At present, there is no preparation even after two days. Efforts are on. But till now the situation is such that no plan chart is ready for how electricity will be produced after two days. Maharashtra’s Minister of State for Energy, Prajakt Tanpure himself has told this. Tanpure has said that there is only enough coal (Coal Crisis in Maharashtra) in the state, which can be used to generate electricity in two days. However, the minister has also given an assurance that the public should not get tensed. During the festival, the public will not be put in power crisis.
Talking to the media about the shortage of coal, Tanpure said, “The crisis of coal shortage that has arisen across the country has also affected Maharashtra. The workers working in the coal mines which are under the control of the central government went on strike in the month of August. After this the work was stopped even in torrential rains. Because of this the problem of shortage of coal has arisen.
‘The price of coal doubled in the international market too’
Minister of State for Power Prajakt Tanpure further said, “The price of coal in the international market has doubled. This also had an impact on the supply of coal to thermal power plants. We have appealed to the central government to send more stock of coal to the state. We are making every effort to ensure that there is no power crisis in Maharashtra. There is no need for load shedding, the state government is trying its best. So there is no need to worry.”
