New Delhi: Unable to fix the problems arising from the power crisis in the national capital, the Delhi government has started writing letters to various ministries to seek help.

On one hand, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit will write to Union Power Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for intervention into the matter, on the other Delhi Power Minister Haroon Yusuf will convey his message to his counterpart in Uttar Pradesh.

Apart from listing the problem of overdrawing power, they will also urge to find a solution in this matter.

After the Cabinet meeting at the secretariat, Dikshit accused Uttar Pradesh and Haryana of the power crisis in the national capital.

Dikshit said that the overdrawing of power from the neighbouring states was political. “They should stop doing so. I will seek intervention of the Union Power Minister into the matter,” she added.

The workers at the Coal India have withdrawn their strike. Meanwhile, Yusuf said that after the strike got over, coal blocks have been dispatched to the power stations and the situation will be under control within two days.

“On Tuesday, due to shortage of 150 mw, power supply had to be cut which indicates improvement in the condition,” he added.

But, power generation is still posing problems due to no water supply from the Agra canal to the Badarpur power station.

“The Uttar Pradesh government is overdrawing 800-2000 mw power,” he added.
