• Despite grim scenario, no power cuts: Energy Minister

    Energy Minister D.K. Shivakumar has assured the people of Karnataka that despite a drought-like situation and the power scenario being grim, the department would not resort to power cuts.

    Speaking at the valedictory ceremony of the training programme held for candidates appointed to various posts in Hubballi Electricity Supply Company and Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Ltd. here on Saturday, the Minister said that the department would make all efforts to supply quality power to farmers, industries and other consumers.

    Mr. Shivakumar said that hydel-power generation was not up to the mark as reservoirs had not received adequate inflow. “However farmers will get three-phase electricity for seven hours and industries will get power round the clock,” he said. Russell Bodine Jersey
