Central Chronicle News
Bhilai, Oct 02: It was a historical day for the village Sikola of Patan block on Saturday as the villagers started generating electricity in the village itself. The power is being generated from the cow-dung and will be used to illuminate the streets of this village.
After inauguration of the plant, the first spot which was lighted from the locally generated electricity was the statue of father of the nation Mahatama Gandhi.
On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, his statue was illuminated with the light of rural self-reliance. It was an important project because Mahatma Gandhi used to dream of self-reliant villages. In the present day world, technology is very important for a self-reliant village. Now villagers can even generate electricity from their natural resources and it has been started from village Sikola.
Congratulating the villagers on this occasion, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said that the villagers have done a great job and have worked towards fulfilling the dream of Mahatma Gandhi. It is very important for a self-reliant village that not only things like electricity should be produced, but rural electricity can also be sold. Electricity is no longer the area of production of only the central government and state government or big companies. Now the villager Baisakhu will also be able to generate electricity.
During this event, Chief Minister interacted with the villagers through a virtual platform. Dhaneshwari Sahu of Sikola told that they are making electricity from the cow dung and they are very happy.
Chief Minister questioned that along with this were they also selling vermi compost. Dhaneshwari replied that they have sold vermi compost worth Rs 2.5 lakh. Deputy Sarpanch Purushottam Yadav informed that the stove of 5 houses of the village is also getting fuel from the Gobar gas plant installed here. Now, this plant is also generating electricity. While praising the villagers, Chief Minister said that it was a big step towards self-reliant village.
CM’s son Chaitanya Baghel, District Krishi Upaj Mandi President Ashwini Sahu, District Panchayat Vice President Ashok Sahu, CM’s OSD Ashish Verma, Janpad President Rambai Sinha and Janpad Vice President Devendra Chandravanshi and other public representatives were present.
Collector Dr Sarveshwar Narendra Bhure, District Panchayat CEO Sachchidanand Alok, SDM Vipul Gupta and Janpad CEO Manish Sahu were also present.
