Going ahead with its commitment to create various knowledge sharing platforms in the national interest, Dainik Bhaskar Group organised the second edition of Power Vision Conclave 2012 in New Delhi yesterday. The conclave was attended in full strength by the stakeholders in government and private sector companies. Union Minister of New and Renewable Energy, Dr Farooq Abdullah, Union Minister of Power Shushil Kumar Shinde, and Chief Minister of Haryana Bhupendra Singh Huda were the chief guests at the conclave.
The conclave started with the inaugural speech by Dr Abdullah which was followed by a state presentation by the Haryana government and a session on ‘Power Logjam’. The seminar concluded with the valedictory sessionin which Shinde highlighted that it was very remarkable to see a media company taking interest in the power sector. The Dainik Bhaskar Group has a presence in the power sector with DB Power Ltd.
Briefing about the conclave, Jaideep Dhagat, Senior General Manager and Business Head, National Government Vertical, Dainik Bhaskar Group, said, “We had a very successful conclave which was a step forward compared with last year. The power sector is facing a lot of challenges, primarily in generation, especially coal and fuel supply. To address all these issues, a relevant conclave with the best possible topics and good speakers was required. So our team worked very hard in close coordination with IndiaCore to finalise the topics in the advisory board meeting following which we had the best panelists from across the country.”
“In fact, our Chairman Ramesh Chandra Agrawal showed us the way in holding such knowledge sharing platforms at the national and state levels. Under his guidance, the National Government Vertical of Dainik Bhaskar Group organises seminars on relevant issues in the national interest, like education, power and infrastructure,” added Dhagat.
Dainik Bhaskar Group also released a white paper on last year’s conclave with a promise to bring another white paper on yesterday’s conclave.
