The minister, during a visit to Chandigarh on Tuesday, met Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and other senior officials to discuss reforms in the state's power sector, besides further enhancing its power generation capacity.

Punjab has been facing a major power crisis for the past few years. The situation was bad this summer too. The state experienced power cuts ranging from five to 15 hours in different areas despite Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal claiming that Punjab would be power surplus and would sell power to other states and even to Pakistan.
