JAMMU, Apr 7: Former Deputy Chief Minister and senior BJP leader, Kavinder Gupta has asserted that the Narendra Modi Government is committed to provide uninterrupted power supply to the people of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and concerted efforts are being taken to ensure the same.
He was speaking at a function in Gadigarh area, on the outskirts of Jammu, where he dedicated an upgraded and bifurcated 33 KVA feeder with an estimated cost of Rs one crore for the people of the area today in presence of party workers, prominent people and a large number of local residents of the area.
Addressing people on the occasion, the former Deputy Chief Minister said that the power sector has shown significant improvement during the last six years and this is clearly evident from the existing ground situation today. He said that earlier the people of Jammu had to face intolerable voltage fluctuation besides the unscheduled power cuts that had made their life quite miserable especially in Summer. However, after implementation of Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme(R-APDRP) in Jammu the power sector has witnessed tremendous improvement as a result of which voltage fluctuation and unscheduled power cuts have become things of the past though with a few exceptions under unavoidable circumstances.
Gupta maintained that people must also play their due role in improving the power situation by making judicious use of electricity. While calling upon the people to avail the benefits of various Union Territory and Centrally sponsored schemes, he asked them to pay their electricity bills well in time so as to enable the Government to properly implement these schemes for the welfare of the common masses.
The senior BJP leader yet again reiterated that PM Modi’s mission of ‘Sab Ka Saath Sab Ka Vikas’ now stands transformed into ‘Sab Ka Saath Sab Ka Vikas Sab Ka Vishwas’, which is evident from the fact that the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir has been witnessing unprecedented development in every sector since Narendra Modi took over the reins of this nation. However, he reminded the people that their cooperation is necessary for the Government to keep on carrying forward the developmental activities in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Among others who accompanied the former Deputy Chief Minister include Baldev Singh Baloria, Bharat Bhushan, Vijay Sarpanch, Pitamber Sharma, Ashok Kumar, Mohit Raina, Karam Jit, Shant Bakshi, Ravi Raina, Pawan Sharma, Gurdial Singh and Koushal Sharma.
