The TDP has criticised Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy for a “flip-flop” on the power tariff hike issue.

TDP MLA G. Muddukrishnama Naidu said Mr. Reddy had stated in the Assembly that it was for the APERC to take a decision on the proposals submitted by the power utilities.

The CM had claimed the government had no say.

“He is assuring people that he will review the power tariff hike issue after the proposals have been vehemently opposed by all sections. Who gave him the power to review the tariff hike?” he asked.
