IMPHAL | Sept 12
Khuga Battalion launched ‘MISSION UJALA’ for people living in the far flung areas near Indo-Myanmar border having very limited access to development schemes, said a release of PIB Defence, Imphal.
It said the border villages namely, Zoukhunou, Hiangtam Khunou and C Lanchah are in very remote areas and have no connection or access to electricity. The company posts located in the villages undertook a special drive under ‘MISSION UJALA’ and provided the villages with electricity for four hours in the night from own limited resources, it added.
It further said that the villagers have benefitted a lot as it helps them charge their electronics devices like mobiles and also helps their children to do studies in the night.
