Chief Minister Shivraj Singh ChouhanMadhya Pradesh government has decided to stop using air conditioners in its offices across the state. The decision was taken at a meeting of senior government officials and top executives of power distribution companies. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who chaired the meeting, said the restrictions would be in place till the power situation in the state improved, a power distribution company official said. The chief minister has also asked the chief executive directors of the power companies to ban the use of neon lights on advertisement hoardings.

The state is struggling with one of its worst power crises as the electricity shortage has jumped to over 1,500 MW during peak hours. Many parts of the state are witnessing power cuts of up to 14 hours a day.District and divisional headquarters suffer from five and three-hour daily power cuts respectively.

"Now, the government offices would not be allowed to use air conditioners. These machines consumes huge quantities of power which worsens the power situation in the state," the official told media. "However, all government hospitals would be exempted from these restrictions," he added.

Chouhan also asked the companies to ensure better power distribution. Cooperation between companies and people is a must in containing the wastage of electricity, he said. The chief minister further appealed to the people to restrict the use of electricity given the present condition. State Energy Minister Anup Mishra, Chief Secretary Rakesh Sahni and Energy Secretary Sanjay Bandopadhyay were also present at the meeting.
