Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao appears to be seeking godly intervention to bail out the state from the acute power shortage. He rechristened the names of power distribution companies (Discoms) after Gods of the region. Normally, Discoms are named after cardinal or ordinal directions of the region they serve. The Telangana Southern Power Distribution Company Limited has become Yadagiri Lakshminarasimha Swamy Power Distribution Company Limited and the Northern Discom as Sri Rajarajeswari Power Distribution Company Limited. Great believer in Godly interventions and Vastu effects, KCR must be seeking the blessings of the presiding deities of Telangana to fulfil the daunting task of providing nine-hour uninterrupted power supply to farm sector. Following the bifurcation of the state, Telangana inherited acute power shortage which forced it to scurry around for the purchase of power. His target is to provide nine-hour supply from next year. As Kharif is going to take off,KCR reviewed power status in the state. It is in this meeting he said he was renaming the Discoms after the Gods of Telangana.
