Speaking after releasing the new year diary and calendar of the Telangana Electricity Engineers Association, Mr. Rama Rao said the role of electricity employees in the movement for statehood too was huge.

Mr. Rama Rao complimented the electricity employees for realising the dreams of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao in the energy sector that was passed on to the newly-formed State in June 2014 with all sorts of problems in all areas of generation, transmission and distribution.

The utilities were not in a position to ensure even six hours power supply to the farm sector in two spells at that time and with their hard work and support of the government had made the glowing present situation possible, he noted.
