Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday claimed that the state would not face power outage during the summer season.


“The government has ensured sufficient coal supply for running power plants to their full capacity,” he told the media at Canal Rest House here after a workers' meeting.

On the government's preparedness to tackle power crises, Hooda said: “Efforts are being made to generate power through sources such as nuclear energy, gas, hydro projects and renewable energy along with coal-based plants.” He said two additional units of 660-megawatt (MW) capacity each would be built in Jhajjar.

On the issue of announcing bonus on the minimum support price (MSP) for wheat owing to less production this year, Hooda said “We have written a letter to the Centre seeking bonus on wheat.”

On the caste violence in Pabnawa village of Kaithal district, the chief minister said the government was capable to provide security to Dalits. “People should set an example of brotherhood in society for creating a congenial atmosphere,” he added.
