Replying to Aihole Duryodhan Mahalingappa (BJP), Shivakumar said measures are being put in place to ensure that the supply of power meets the demand. He said that at present three-phase power is being supplied to irrigation pump sets for seven hours a day and the quantum will continue.

Shivakumar said 43 more taluks have been identified for setting up 20 MW solar power plants taking the total number of 146 taluks.
