New Delhi : These days many parts of the country are facing power shortage. Meanwhile, once again a war of words has broken out between the Center and the Delhi government. The Union Power Ministry has claimed that the Kejriwal government is giving false information to the people. The Energy Minister replied to the letter of Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain and said that the stock figures given in it are completely wrong.

Delhi Energy Minister Satyendar Jain had said on Friday that some power plants have only one day's coal stock. The need for electricity in Delhi has increased a lot and it has become difficult to provide electricity even at a place like a hospital in such a short supply.

Union Energy Minister RK Singh said in a letter to the Delhi government that an atmosphere of fear is being created among the public by telling wrong figures. A similar situation arose in October 2021 as well which was unfounded. In his letter, the minister said that Dadri, Unchahar, Kahalgaon, Farakka and Jhajjar power stations have sufficient coal reserves for 5 to 8 days and the supply of coal is continuing. NTPC has also informed about 100% coal availability at Dadri and Unchahar power plants.

The Union Minister said that in the year 2015, the Delhi government had surrendered some of its share of electricity. After this, electricity was allocated to other states but the Delhi government did not even raise any objection. In 2021, the government suddenly claims that it did not surrender electricity, which is wrong.
