Partha Pratim Roy asks a Supplementary Question on electrification of villages
Many of the villages all over India, including few villages of West Bengal, are unelectrified till now. Madam, in my parliamentary constituency Cooch Behar 54 Mouzas which are disconnected from the mainland – due to the rivers Kaljani and Dhoula – are unelectrified. Fifty five Bangladeshi enclaves which were recently exchanged between Government of India and Government of Bangladesh are also unelectrified. My earnest request to the Minister is to electrify these areas immediately. What is government’s initiative taken in this regard?
