Centre created confusion in coal stock figures: Satyendra Jain

Power minister Satyendar Jain on has stated that the coal stock figures given by him in the recent letter to Union Power minister R K Singh was authentic and if there was any confusion, it was created by the Central government.

In his letter on April 28 letter he had given details of low coal stock at various thermal plants supplying power to Delhi, and urged the Centre to ensure adequate availability of coal for uninterrupted electricity supply in the capital.

Replyng to Jain, Singh had charged that the Delhi government was “misleading” the public with incorrect information about the electricity situation in the capital, according to sources. He had also shared availability of coal at various plants.

“After my letter, they may be through diversion of rakes or some other way, increased coal supply a little bit,” Jain said answering a question over the issue of coal stock at thermal power plants.
The Delhi power minister claimed that even the Union Power minister has accepted that the coal stock at different power plants was for 3-5 days only, while it should be maintained for 21 days.
“I sent him authenticated data, which was available on their website. There is no confusion in it, if anyone has created any confusion it was done by the website and the Centre,” Jain said.
