Hyderabad, Aug 18 (PTI) Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday favoured bringing in a comprehensive national power policy to provide quality, uninterrupted electricity to all the sectors. Of the total captive power generation in the country, not even half of it is being utilised, but yet several parts in the country are living without power, he said. There are also frequent power cuts all over the country and the situation should be addressed, a release from his office said. Power Finance Corporation (PFC) Chairman Rajiv Sharma, who toured the state for three days and visited power plants and Kaleswaram project, paid a courtesy call on the Chief Minister on Sunday, it said. A discussion took place on the power situation in the state and in the country on the occasion, it added. The financial help extended by the PFC had helped the state a lot for setting of power plants and revamping the electricity related institutions, Rao said, thanking Sharma for the help. PTI SJR RHL
