XIII LOK SABHA DEBATES, Session I Friday, October 29, 1999/Kartika 7, 1921 (Saka)

Type of Debate: MATTERS UNDER RULE-377
Title: Need to provide financial assistance to the State Government of Uttar Pradesh for setting up another power station in Amroha (U.P.)

constituency Amroha(consisting of districts Jyotiba Pholy Nagar and District Bijnor) U.P. is worst ever, for a long time which has badly affected not only small industries but the farmers and general public as well.

The school going children are unable to study due to lack of electricity.

Basically, it is a very poor area. Teenagers, girls, boys and even housewives are attached with Bidi industry, which is the main industry of the area, to earn their bread. All of them cannot work after sunset which affects their earnings. Immediate instructions should be issued to provide adequate electricity in Amroha and the adjoining area.

A separate power station of, at lest, 100 mw to generate more electricity should also be built up as early as possible to fulfil the need of the area. I request the Union Government to provide financial assistance to the State Government of U.P. for the purpose.
