Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Monday said his government will not let a power blackout take place in the state and he has asked the Centre to ensure an adequate supply of coal. Channi's statement came amid a power crisis triggered by severe coal shortage in the state's thermal power plants.

"Not only Punjab, but the entire country is also facing the power crisis because of coal shortage," Channi told reporters, adding that he spoke to the coal minister and even had written a letter in this regard.
