Amit Shah Meet Minister Amid Coal Shortage, Power Blackouts Concern

Union Home Minister Amit Shah met his cabinet colleagues in charge of the coal and power ministries on Monday amid concerns of an electricity shortage in many parts of the country because of inadequate supplies of coal.The meeting, which is still underway, was attended by senior bureaucrats as well as officials from the state-run energy conglomerate NTPC Limited.Several states have warned of blackouts even though the central government has assured that India has ample coal stocks to meet the demand of its power plants, seeking to allay fears of imminent blackouts in New Delhi and other cities.The current fuel stock at coal-powered plants is about 7.2 million tons, sufficient for four days, the Ministry of Coal said in a statement on Sunday.
