Informing that Gundya and Yenmaras have got provisional license, he said that he does not understand why Jayaram Ramesh, who used to be for setting up of Thadadi project is now opposing Gundya and Yenmaras projects. “How can one’s stand change with portfolio?” he questioned.

He said that State Government is determined to provide quality electricity supply to the people of the State and in 2 years the State government will set an example by providing 24 hours of power supply under its Niranthara Jyoti project.

Mayor Shanker Bhat said that MCC is taking up concrete works and Mescom has been creating problems by not co-operating with MCC to remove the undergound cable lines. He said that they have been asking for huge sum of money for removing the lines, failing which they have warned to leave the live wires as it is so that MCC cannot proceed with the works. He urged the minister to see to it that the cost is borne by the Ministry itself so that MCC can carry on developmental works faster.
