Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Water resources minister Tulsiram Silawat on Sunday asked Madhya Pradesh West Zone Electricity Distribution Company officials to ensure sufficient power supply for irrigation purposes.
“The state government has directed power distribution companies to supply 10 hours of electricity daily for irrigation. The direction should be met in letter and spirit,” the minister told West Discom officials in a meeting at Residency.
