Himachal became fully electrified way back in 1988, and now the government is focusing on quality and uninterrupted power supply, he said adding that efforts were also being made to promote solar power potential in the state.
Acharya Dev Vrat said he appreciated the efforts of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur in promoting natural farming in the state. He said only natural farming could increase the organic carbon content of the soil.
After BJP MLA (Nurpur) Rakesh Pathania raised this issue in the House, under Rule 63, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said that earlier governments had also sent a proposal to the Centre, suggesting the setting up of a circuit bench at Dharamshala.
