HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) chairman A. Raghotham Rao on Monday said he would give an opportunity to CPI leaders to present their views on the Konaseema power project's claims on May 23.
This was on an appeal made by CPI leader K. Ramakrishna before the Commission. He told the Commission that the inquiry on the Konaseema's claims being made to the tune of Rs. 1,411 crore was not being held in a transparent manner and without the knowledge of people.
This was not proper as any order passed by the Commission on the issue would burden the consumers, he argued. The purpose for which the Commission was formed would be lost, if consumers and their representatives were not allowed to participate in the hearings. He also wanted the Commission to give relevant papers to the party to enable the CPI State Council secretary K. Narayana to attend the hearing. Mr. Rao clarified that there was no bar on anybody attending the hearings and said he would give time to the CPI leaders and others who have raised objections to Konaseema's claims.
