Gujarat offers 2,000mw power to other states
The state government offered around 2,000mw power of idle power generation capacity in the state, to other states, provided the Centre supplies gas for powering the plants. The proposal was made by CM Modi before the central team comprising union ministers Sharad Pawar and Jairam Ramesh.
“Gujarat is a power surplus state, but 2,000mw of power generation capacity is lying idle because of gas shortage. If gas is provided to these projects, the power generated can be supplied to the Northern states, which are facing a serious energy crisis,” Modi said. The CM also pointed out that the Gujarat government was willing to supply the power to other states for one year.
