Senior Congress leader Bhajan Lal on Friday said Digvijay Singh government in Madhya Pradesh has taken concrete steps to improve power scenario and the projects being executed would make the state power surplus in three years.

The former Haryana Chief Minister told reporters that a number of power generation projects would be completed in the next three years in the state due to the initiative taken by the Congress government.

Road and electricity projects in the pipeline would be completed fast if Congress is voted to power for the third time in a row, he said, describing Digvijay Singh as a dynamic and progressive leader.

He said power problem is being faced in all states and it is not confined to Madhya Pradesh.

He said Madhya Pradesh government has taken a series of steps to strengthen the social sector during the past ten years ensuring decentralisation of power in an effort to empower the poor and backward sections of society.

Bhajan Lal said there is no comparison between Digvijay Singh and BJP star campaigner Uma Bharti as she lacks experience, clarity in thinking and maturity.

He claimed that Congress would come to power at the centre after the next Lok Sabha elections and Digvijay Singh should be given a third term to ensure proper coordination between the two governments.
