Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal has warned of an impending energy crisis in the Indian capital, saying some of the major coal stations supplying the city have been left with a spare day.
Several states in eastern and southern India have been hit by supply shortages, with service providers using unplanned power outages.
The shortage in India, the world’s second-largest coal-consuming country, follows widespread power outages in China that have shut down factories and hit production and global supply chains badly.
“Delhi could face an energy crisis,” said Kejriwal. “We are trying our best to avoid it.”
Kejriwal urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve the crisis immediately, saying any major disruption would affect hospitals and disrupt coronavirus vaccinations for Delhi’s 20 million people.
