Siliguri (WB), May 30: Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today expressed confidence that all villages in the country would be electrified by the end of 2009 as per the programme of the UPA government.

Dedicating to the nation Power Grid Corporation's new 400/220 kv power sub-station, about 12 km from here, Shinde said his ministry was giving adequate stress on controlling power theft and conservation while trying to bring every household within the power supply network.

He said there was scope for production of more nuclear power in the country which at present was only three per cent of the total power generation.

Shinde also paid a brief visit to Pongla near Namchi in South Sikkim to assess the progress of work on the 400 kva transmission tower being put up there by PGCIL.

The powerful transmission tower, a first of its kind for the state, will be linked up with the NHPC's ambitious Teesta Stage-V hydel power project nearing completion in East Sikkim, District Collector (South) D Anandan told PTI on phone from Namchi.

Accompanied by the PGCIL Chairman R P Singh the Power Minister was received by Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling and a host of senior government officials at Assangthang near Namchi.

After surveying the project site at Pongla, Shinde left for Bagdogra, the South District DC said. (Agencies)

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
