Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Himachal Budget 2019 -

There are ben­e­fits for ev­ery sec­tion of the so­ci­ety and this bud­get will boost the growth of farm­ers, hor­ti­cul­tur­ists, work­ers, em­ploy­ees, youth and women. Jai Ram ji’s gov­ern­ment will give more im­pe­tus to de­vel­op­ment in the com­ing days.

PK Dhu­mal, for­mer CM,

se­nior BJP leader This bud­get has been for­mu­lated en­tirely by the bu­reau­cracy. CM spoke about at­tract­ing global in­vest­ment, but as the past has shown us, in­vestors don’t come here due to lack of a proper mar­ket . So due to lack of re­sources, it be­comes tough to im­ple­ment the schemes. Virb­hadra Singh, ex-CM and

se­nior Congress leader

These in­clude 100 MW Uhl-III and 111 MW Sawara-Kuddu.

The two projects will gen­er­ate ad­di­tional 700MW units of power per year. State will also get ad­di­tional 200 mil­lion units of power after com­mis­sion­ing of Renuka project, which has been de­clared a project of na­tional im­por­tance. 850 new dis­tri­bu­tions sub-cen­ters will be set up by the state elec­tric­ity board to pro­vide new con­nec­tions and im­prove volt­age.

Ten MW ca­pac­ity rooftop so­lar power plants are also pro­posed to be in­stalled. The gov­ern­ment will spend ₹475 crore on power sub­sidy to do­mes­tic con­sumer.
