Chandigarh, September 5: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) blamed the previous Congress and Akali governments for failing to pay attention to the thermal plants, resulting in a power shortage in the region.Malwinder Singh Kang, the party's chief spokesperson, said that the heatwave this year had broken previous records and that the highest temperature was recorded in the last 108 years, resulting in a 40 percent increase in electricity demand in April and May this year, which is an average of 10900 MW.Whereas last year, the average daily energy demand in these months was just 6500 MW, he said.According to him, the rival groups used Punjab's power generation resources for their own selfish ends and deliberately destroyed the thermal power plants.

Punjab will be covered by a supply of electricity in the coming days.During the season of paddy sowing, electricity consumption rises, but I want to ensure that the farmers do not face an electricity shortage.According to Kuang, the chief minister is keeping an eye on the situation.According to him, the Congress government cut off energy sources by closing down four thermal plants in Bathinda and two in Ropar.

Former governments' impoverished policies have placed the people in jeopardy.Besides that, the Akali and Congress governments have failed to operate the coal mine which was allotted to Punjab in 2001 and Chhattisgarh since 2015.7,000 tonnes of coal are produced annually at the mine.The mine will be operational by June, according to Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.
