Besides, he continued, several areas would be positively impacted by the entry of the electricity network, including Sengayam and Sungaidurian.
"Preparation for network expansion have already begun. Local government will be involved in land acquisition, for example the network poles entering the land of residents of a company. Well, that will be local government to help the acquisition," he explained.
