Yogi Adityanath gave Uttar Pradesh the power project worth Rs 2723 crore: On the occasion of the Electricity Festival and Energy Day, which were conducted as part of the Ujjwal Bharat, Ujjwal Bhavishya campaign, 12 power substations and transmission centres were officially opened throughout Uttar Pradesh, while the foundation stones for an additional five were placed.
On Saturday, Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister, attended the projects’ inauguration. The initiatives are expected to cost a total of Rs. 2723.20 crore.
When congratulating people, CM Yogi Adityanath noted that Uttar Pradesh has experienced a significant increase in power supply and production under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to him, 1.21 lakh villages that had been without electricity since independence had been electrified in the previous five years. Additionally, 1.43 crore free electrical connections had been offered to poor residents of the state through the Saubhagya Yojana.
The chief minister Yogi Adityanath added that just four “VIP districts” in Uttar Pradesh obtained power under past administrations, leaving the remaining 71 districts’ residents to struggle in the dark. But now there are no VIP areas because every neighbourhood is a VIP area. People have had access to energy for the past five years without restriction. Democracy is what we have here, the CM said.
According to the CM, power is currently accessible in district headquarters for 23 to 24 hours, tehsil headquarters for 20 to 22 hours, and villages for 16 to 18 hours. As the nation commemorates Amrit Mahotsava, he continued, “Our goal in the next five years is to bring power to every home in the state to help realise the goal of Ujjwal Bharat in the next 25 years.”
In order to make the energy department self-sufficient, CM Yogi also encouraged Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation staff to improve the billing and connection procedures.
