Jamshedpur: Vowing to put Jharkhand back on
the track of all-round development, Chief Minister Arjun Munda
today said the government is committed to make it a `power
surplus` state in the next three years.

"Coalition government was given one more opportunity and
it is our responsibility to provide a corruption-free and
people-oriented government," Munda told a meeting held by the
BJP here to felicitate him on becoming Chief Minister.

The government is committed to provide uninterrupted
power supply to people by producing surplus electricity in the
next three years, he said.

Stating that mineral-rich Jharkhand had earned a bad
name owing to "prevailing corruption", Munda promised to take
stern action against those involved in corrupt practices.

"We have already chalked out a plan to achieve rapid
development and the state cabinet has approved construction of
2000 km highways in the state including Hazaribagh-Baharagora
(East Singhbhum) and also the Adityapur-Kandra Road in the
industrial estate in Saraikela-Kharswan district," the Chief
Minister announced.
