Speaking on the occasion ZPM Lungla called it a historic day because we are celebrating Ujjwal Bharat Ujjwal Bhavishya programme and with this we are stepping on a new mission of making our country energy independent by year 2047, at the same time we are celebrating 75 years of our independence and we are grateful to our leaders, our freedom fighters for their struggle. Our country and State Arunachal Pradesh has achieved new heights of development in every sector, under able leadership of Narendra Modi and Pema Khandu. Earlier the electricity connections were limited to circle headquarters and nearby villages, but today we have electricity connection in every household. He conveyed his gratitude to the Power department and requested to continue with regular power supply. He requested all the villagers to use energy judiciously and clear the revenue in time.

Additional DC Lungla Tashi Dhondup said many of our villages have been brought from darkness to light, we have witnessed our border villages being electrified in last few years, and conveyed his gratitude to the Government for working day and night to provide facility to the citizens residing in interiors. Without electricity we cannot imagine a normal life in this modern world. He appealed the students and youths to work towards making India an energy surplus producing country.
