J-K's Ganouri-Tanta village receives electricity for the 1st time
Jammu and Kashmir's Ganouri-Tanta village saw the light of an electric bulb for the first time on January 18, ending the decades of darkness from the lives of the villagers. Village is located in the far-flung area of Doda district. The electrification work of the village was taken up on the order of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, after a group of locals put forward the demand before him at the last "LG Mulaqaat" programme. LG asked the Doda district administration to ensure the electrification of the village within a month. To celebrate the historical moment with the villagers, District Development Council Dr Sagar D Doifode visited the village and formally declared it as electrified by lighting up a bulb amid huge rounds of applause by elated locals. DDC ensured that the progress of electrification work was monitored on a daily basis, while providing every logistic support to the JPDCL team associated with the task.
