Maverlikkara (Kerala) Lok Sabha Member Kodikkunnil Suresh has sought allocation of 226 MW of power, which is Kerala's share, from the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP), whose first unit of 1000 MW will be commissioned in the next few days.

Raising the issue during the zero hour in the House on Friday, he said the State was facing power shortage and against the demand of 3,436 MW Kerala was getting only 3,216 MW leaving a gap of 220 MW. Due to this the State Government had to resort to power cuts.
