“The underground power network will ensure uninterrupted power supply, reduce system loss, reduce client hassle and grow beauty of city,” he said.

Nasrul also said that power distribution companies should be efficient to meet advanced technological demands.

Urging for timely completion of the project, Nasrul expressed hope that underground network would reduce distribution cost as well as ensure uninterrupted power supply.

The state minister said the government will reach electricity to every house prior to the stipulated timeframe.
