The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday blamed the Centre for the on-going power crisis in the State.

Addressing a press conference here, Bjp leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy alone could not be blamed for the power crisis. He said it was the responsibility of the Centre to provide adequate gas and coal for power generation. However, he alleged that the Centre was encouraging the State to buy power from other States at higher rates.
