India short of coal, accepts power minister; politicos from rival parties slam govt

New Delhi, July 17 (ANI): India's power and coal minister Piyush Goyal has admitted that the country is running dangerously low on coal that has led to a shortage of power supply in many parts in the country. Even though Goyal passed the buck onto the previous UPA government, Congress leader Ambika Soni said that rather than blaming the UPA, the current government should take action to solve the problem. Last week Goyal urged power companies to raise thermal coal imports after saying that 26 out of 100 coal-based power plants in India had "super critical" stocks. However, opposition parties are urging the government to use up saved coal in India rather than importing it to provide cheap electricity to people. Jul 17, 2014
