*The CM inaugurated newly constructed 6 grid sub-station and related transmission line projects online at Project building in Ranchi on Tuesday.
*Guaranteed quality and uninterrupted power supply from newly constructed power projects at a cost of Rs. 616 crores.
Considered as a historic achievement for Jharkhand in the field of power supply, 6 Grid Sub-Station can be a milestone in the development of the state. The project was launched by the NDA government led by the then CM Raghubar Das in the past.
The Chief Minister said that completing the work of these six power projects amid Corona pandemic was a big challenge, but the state government's determination and commitment made it possible.
With the commencement of these projects, a radical change is expected in the field of power supply. The dependence on others for electricity supply will be reduced and the state will be able to supply electricity from rural areas to industrial units.
The Chief Minister said that electricity has become an important part of human life today. Without electricity, no development project can be imagined. Either for domestic or industrial purpose, electricity is very important. The state government is committed to ensure that every village receives uninterrupted electricity. The work of power projects has been expedited to ensure house-to-house power supply.
Soren said that these six power projects are major steps in the direction of an uninterrupted power supply. Garhwa district' power supply was dependent on another state, but now Bhagodih grid sub-station and transmission line has done away with this dependence.
At the same time, with the commencement of the Jasidih Grid Sub-Station, Deoghar will be able to get an uninterrupted power supply. Also, the construction work of AIIMS and Airport here has started. This will also promote tourism in Deoghar.
With the commencement of grid sub-stations and associated transmission lines in Giridih, Jamua and Saria, there will be no dependency on DVC for power supply in the Giridih district.
The Chief Minister said that DVC is more engaged in providing electricity mainly to the industrial fields, but never in rural areas of Jharkhand. Now the per unit rate will be only 3 rupees whereas DVC used to charge 5 rupees per unit of electricity.
The Chief Minister said that the Corona crisis remains a big challenge not only for Jharkhand but the whole world. But, the state government is capable of dealing with this disaster. The government is concerned about 3.25 crore people of the state. The government is keeping close eyes on the developments.
The Corona testing has been expedited and continuous efforts are being made to improve the health system. He said that during the Corona Virus pandemic and lockdown, the government did the work of distributing food with food grains on a large scale. No people died of hunger in the state. He said that we have to convert this challenge into opportunity.
The state government has made several arrangements to ensure better health care of the people. He said that along with this battle against Corona, the system also has to be run.
