We are committed to providing uninterrupted electricity supply," the chief minister said, releasing the whitepaper.

"We are committed to providing uninterrupted electricity supply. The quality of electricity should be maintained without hiking true-up charges. I have to go through the agreements done by the previous government. Andhra Pradesh is one of the states to go with green hydrogen," the CM added. (ANI)
