Ghaziabad has become the first district in the state to have electricityin all its households. Chief minister Yogi Adityanathpraised the Centre’s Saubhagya scheme and said his government’s efforts to augment the powerinfrastructure through it would cover the entire state in the future.
“When we took over the reins of the state, of a total of 4 crore households in the country that had no access to electricity, about 1.75 crore was in UP alone. But in a year’s time, we have done a commendable job in this direction and 100 per cent electrification in all households in Ghaziabad bears a testimony to the claim,” said Adityanath.
Since the launch of central government’s Saubhagya scheme on December 17 last year, a total of 80,000 households were given with electricity connection, officials said. On Friday, the chief minister also inaugurated projects worth around Rs 150 crore in the city. He was in Ghaziabad to inaugurate the Hindon Elevated Road.
