Fatehgarh Churian gets 66-kV sub-station
Another 66-kV power station was being established at Jaura Singha village
A long-pending demand of residents of the Fatehgarh Churian assembly was fulfilled when Cabinet minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa inaugurated a 66-kV power sub-station at Vellu Teja.
For the last several decades, villagers had been complaining about fluctuations following which electrical appliances were damaged. Bajwa said he had been receiving regular complaints after which he had taken up the matter with PSPCL officials.
The sub-station has been established at a cost of Rs 5 crore and will benefit residents of nearly 20 villages.
He added that another 66-kV power station was being established at Jaura Singha village. “I have promised the villagers to set up more such sub-stations in the area provided they do in for crop diversification. The state government is already looking into establishing more stations to ensure quality power supply is given to villagers,” said Bajwa.
Those who were present there included CMD, PSPCL, Baldev Singh Sran; director, administration, RP Pandove; director, distribution, NK Sharma; chief engineer, border range, Sandeep Sood, and superintendent engineer Ajay Kumar Sharma.
