She inaugurated a 220-kv power sub-station here, and also launched nine new road construction projects under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana at Churva.

“Availability of electricity will have a positive effect on the people of the area. Power is one of the fundamental needs of the people today, thus we should not waste it as it is scarce,” she said after inaugurating the power station.

Sonia, who was accompanied by Union Power Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, said that the UPA government is targeting to electrify all homes by 2012.

“Under the Rajiv Gandhi Electrification Scheme we are targeting 1737 villages and more than two lakhs homes are being electrified, out of which 1.75 lakh homes will get free connections till 2008,” she added.

She took stock of the National Dairy Development Board’s unit in Bachrawan, Kundanganj, Harchnadpur and Dusauti.

She also visited the Hariyali Kishan Bazar in Didauli and inaugurated a computer laboratory at the Firoze Gandhi Engineering College. (ANI)
