The minister commended the workers' efforts in transforming telangana from a state with a power crisis to one with a surplus.

We overcome the power crisis thanks to the power staff's tireless efforts and the skillful leadership of chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. The administration has implemented a number of initiatives over the past nine years to improve the situation and increase energy output, the official added.
