Priya Dutt, Congress leader, inaugurated the solar power facilities at three remote villages of Kokkarewad, Dhuparthiwad and Mullankere in Kalghatagi taluk recently.
The facilities have been provided by ‘Namma Mitra’, a non-government organisation. These villages are mainly inhabited by the backward Gauli community members and lack basic amenities. They were provided solar power and drinking water units. Ms. Dutt said these villages did not have power grid and access to clean drinking water.
