Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Wednesday said that his government was doing all it could to sort out the power crisis.

Blaming the previous government for the power problem, he said that his government had taken some serious steps in the last three months to address the issue.

He said that in the previous government's tenure, sub-standard transformers were purchased. In the last three months, 700 transformers got burnt in Gorakhpur, 700 in Lucknow and 80 in Bahraich.

He warned that strict action would be taken against suppliers of such sub-standard transformers and also against officials who approved them.

The chief minister informed that the government was working towards establishing power plants to increase generation.
