Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy wrote to his Telangana counterpart, K Chandrasekhar Rao to increase the daily supply of coal from Singareni coal mines to Andhra Pradesh. Presently, Telangana supplies 4 rakes a day while Jagan asked KCR to increase the supply to 9 rakes a day.
An official press release from AP Chief Minister Office said that while the state was adequately equipped to handle the demand, a series of incidents led to a shortage for Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO).
"An accident occurred in Bharathpur mines in Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) area in July, which caused closure of the mine and followed by 15 days strike which adversely affected the coal supplies to APGENCO state thermal stations. Again, in third week of September 2019, there was a strike in MCL mines for 3 days and in the Singareni mines for one day. Our thermal stations are once again adversely affected as a result," said the statement.
Additionally, heavy rainfalls in the month of September also affected the supply of coal from the mines to APGENCO. Meanwhile, Jagan also wrote to Union Coal Minister, Prahlad Joshi to arrange for alternate coal supply to the APGENCO as per provisions in the fuel supply agreement.
