VIJAYAWADA: Nara Lokesh, son of CM Chandrababu Naidu and TDP Workers’ Welfare Fund coordinator, sparkled at Nuzvid in Krishna district. While all eyes were on Chandrababu Naidu’s review meeting with collectors in Vijayawada, Lokesh made a flash visit to Marasapudi village, near Nuzvid, to inaugurate a 1 MW solar power plant constructed by Renon Solar Private Ltd on Thursday.

Speaking at the launch of the power plant, Lokesh said that the government was committed to transforming AP into a state with no power cuts and stressed on the importance being given to solar power generation.

“The government was preparing a strategy to produce 12,000 MW of solar power and would soon set up a 1,000 MW solar power unit in Anantapur,” he added

Lokesh assured a red carpet welcome for industrialists who want to invest in AP and promised that 24-hour power supply would be provided by October while pointing out that farmers were already getting seven-hours of power supply and that power cuts had decreased drastically in AP.

In response to a question about the loan waiver, Lokesh said that he was not the right person to speak and added that in spite of the delay, the government was making all efforts to provide a relief of `1 lakh to every household.

On Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao’s statement that AP should compete with Telangana in terms of development, Lokesh shot back saying AP would compete with developed nations like Singapore and there was no need for it to compete with Telangana.

Renon Solar power MD Srivastava, Gannavaram MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi, former MLA Muddaraboyina and local TDP leaders accompanied Lokesh.

Interacting with party workers, Lokesh said that the party would take care of the interests of all workers who had been with the party in its difficult times.
