"It is the dream of Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah and the chief minister that every house, every poor, and every village get power by 2018", Sharma said.

"It is easy to take decisions in the cabinet but very hard to implement on ground level".

Replying to former CM Akhilesh Yadav's statement that there is nothing new in providing power during Navratri and Ramnavami, and that the decision to provide 18 hours electricity to villages, 20 hours to tehsils and Bundelkhand region, and 24 hours for district headquarters was already taken by his government, Sharma said that earlier the roster system was there but it existed merely on files and remained restricted to the CM's residence and some VIP areas. The managing director of the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation, A P Mishra, resigned soon after Power Minister Shrikant Sharma asked him to explain the reason behind the delay. "The government is working for providing 24-hour power supply by October 2018", he said.

Sharma pointed out that 24-hour power supply had been ensured during "Navratra" to all the "shaktipeeths" (religious places).

Announcing a one-time settlement scheme, Sharma said it was made a decision to waive surcharge on domestic connection and take only principal amount of the bill.

The farmers having outstanding power bills of Rs 10,000 or more will be allowed to pay the same in four installments, the cabinet decided.
