Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu today expressed concern over power shortage in the state which is being touted as the power house of India.
In a review meeting attended by high officials, engineers and technicians, the chief minister pointed out that almost all districts faced power shortage, particularly during the lean period when generation of power from small hydro projects was at the lowest.
The attendees suggested proper transmission lines, purchase of additional power from central grids and maintenance of state-owned hydro projects.
The chief minister called for perfect coordination between the departments of power and hydro-power so that the power generated by state-owned hydro stations are judiciously and equitably distributed by the power department to consumers.
