Soon after taking oath as the Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy presided over the first cabinet meeting, during which he instructed the officials not to accept the resignation of Prabhakar Rao, who stepped down from the post few days back, and directed the officials concerned to summon Prabhakar Rao to the review meeting.

On the second day in his office, the Chief Minister held a high-level meeting with officials on the power sector at the Secretariat where Ministers Uttam Kumar Reddy, Ponnam Prabhakar and Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy, Chief Secretary Santhi Kumari, Chief Secretary to the Chief Minister’s Office Seshadri, Special Principal Secretary (Finance) Ramakrishna Rao, Special Chief Secretary (Energy) Sunil Sharma, Singareni CMD Sridhar, TSCPDCL CMD Raghuma Reddy, NPDCL CMD Gopal Rao and other officials participated.

However, Prabhakar Rao skipped the Chief Minister’s review meeting and told the media that he had no information about the CM’s meeting.

“No one has called me for the review meeting. If the Chief Minister summons me, I will not stay away from the meeting and will definitely attend it. I have no information about today’s review,” he clarified.

The officials reportedly told the Chief Minister that the total debts of power sector in Telangana were Rs.85,000 crores. Apart from this, as part of the six guarantees given by the Congress party, free electricity will be given to those who use less than 200 units of electricity.

In this background, the Chief Minister conducted a comprehensive review for the full understanding of the affairs of the power department for the implementation of 200 units assurance.
