Directed power dept to ensure early completion of Darbar Sahib solar power project: Punjab CM

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday said he has directed the power department to accord approval to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee for installation of a solar plant for the Darbar Sahib in Amritsar. Extending his government’s full support to the project, Singh also directed the department to work proactively to ensure its early completion.

The chief minister was responding to a statement by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur about not getting sanction from the state government for the project to supply electricity to the Darbar Sahib.

A government spokesperson said that in a meeting held earlier this week, the power department pledged full support to the project.

US-based United Sikh Mission had sought permission to set up the plant of two megawatts at a location around 10 kilometres from the Golden Temple, the official said.

The government has no objection and the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has given in-principle approval, said the spokesperson.
