Centre not against giving free power supply: Kishan Reddy


Hyderabad: Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy here on Tuesday clarified that the Central government was not against supplying free power to farmers. Addressing a press conference at the BJP State office in Nampally, he asked why the Centre would raise an objection when the State government wants to give free power.
However, the intention of the Central government to introduce reforms in the power sector was to bail out discoms in the States from the increasing debts and ensure that the electricity department employees get salaries on time.
