Electricity Minister Senthil Balaji, who met the media after a review meeting held at the power board’s head office in Anna Road, Chennai, said, “Precautionary measures have been taken to deal with the rains and electricity is being distributed without any difficulty. Electricity supply has been stopped as a precautionary measure in some places where the Cauvery river is flooded.
150 transformers shut down in Nilgiri district due to falling trees. The Nilgiri district will have steady power supply by this evening. Special officers have been appointed in all 234 blocks to ensure uniform power supply. 1.11 thousand electric poles are ready. 10 thousand km of power lines are ready. The height of transformers and sub-stations in rain-affected areas last year has been increased.
After the completion of the installation of burial wires across Chennai, the details and estimates of the remaining districts will be prepared and an announcement will be made soon. In the first phase, 100 locations have been selected for setting up charging stations for electric vehicles on national highways and state highways in Tamil Nadu. Tender will be called and notification will be issued soon.
The BJP leader, who has been using the media to project his presence in politics without any popular influence, did not want to respond to Annamalai. I will give the answer after Annamalai has answered the question I have already asked. “Annamalai is in a state of intimidation by someone belonging to a political scene as to what action the enforcement department will take,” the minister said.
