Jaipur: The Rajasthan government yesterday said that 24-hour power supply would be ensured for all in the state this year, as promised in the BJP's election manifesto, a minister said.

Once the state achieves self-reliance in electricity generation, power would be supplied for all for 24 hours during this year, Rajasthan Energy Minister Gajendra Khimsar said.

To achieve this target power generation and transmission systems would be strengthened by reducing Theft and Distribution Losses (T&DL), which is about 20 per cent now,Khimsar said while addressing villagers at Lohawat in Jodhpur district.

Recalling Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's commitment to the people, he said electricity would be supplied not only to urban population but also in villages right up to "dhani", and this would achieved this year, according to an official release issued here.
