    In Hyderabad, senior BRS leader G Jagadish Reddy criticized news reports claiming that a power purchase agreement with Chhattisgarh cost Telangana Rs 6,000 crore. He called the government’s statement false and accused the Congress and BJP of trying to send their party chief KCR to jail. Reddy, along with Nalgonda district leaders, held a press conference to address the issue.

    Reddy denied that the previous government made mistakes in power purchases. He claimed that the Commission Chairman L Narasimha Reddy was influenced by Congress and BJP leaders during a press conference. Reddy defended the government’s actions and stated that no loss was incurred by the state exchequer. He also highlighted the savings made by the government on inverters and generators.

However, he accused the Congress and BJP of spreading misinformation to create doubt among the public.
