BANGALORE: For ensuring continuous power supply from March 1 by spending about Rs. 500 crore to purchase 1,000 MW of power till August 2010, the Peenya Industries Association (PIA) has thanked Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa.

In a release, the president of the Peenya Industries Association, Ramakrishna Mudugal, said, “This arrangement has helped the industries, particularly micro and small industries, sustain their activities.”

If this was not done, micro and small units would have suffered losses, he said.
