In the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh government’s allegations against the Centre of non-cooperation in power sector, Union Minister Piyush Goyal today said the central government was providing electricity at a cheaper rate but the state was not ready to purchase it.

“Cribbing over shortage of power, the UP government is indulging in rostering, while the Centre was providing electricity at the rate of Rs 2.25 per unit,” Goyal said during a meeting here.

“In reality, the state government is not purchasing power and is forcing the people to live in darkness,” he said. He said any citizen could check the facts on their official website.
