Normalcy will return to Meghalaya in another 36-48 hours as far as the load shedding issues in the state are concerned, this was revealed by Chief Minister Conrad Sangma who informed the power woes will be addressed and resolved by the State government.
The development comes with Power Minister James Sangma’s visit to New Delhi where he met with the Union Power Minister to resolve the load shedding issue of the state.
The Chief Minister further added that final discussions, agreement and necessary formalities will be completed today, hence the Government expects normalcy to return in the next 36 hours to 48 hours.
In a first for the state, the National Thermal Power Corporation will be regulating power to Meghalaya. Sangma said it is surprising on the part of NTPC as Meghalaya do not buy any power from NTPC.
He informed that NTPC regulates the supply of power for Meghalaya from other Power generating companies, however, NTPC does not directly supply any power from their own generation as the state does not buy from NTPC.
