Sensing this danger, District Magistrate Anurag Patel had to write a letter to the first Managing Director of Dakshinachal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited, Agra.
fear of chaos
The DM has said in a letter to the Managing Director that during Navratri in the urban and rural areas of Banda, the work of worshiping Goddess Durga by installing idols at different places starts from the evening time. Where a large number of devotees gather, but due to the undeclared power cut in the night, there is a fear of spreading chaos along with great anger among the devotees.
‘Electricity should be given at night’
In such a situation, along with providing uninterrupted power supply in the headquarters, it is very necessary to get rid of the undeclared cuts at night in rural areas. Apart from this, if necessary, power cuts can be made in rural areas from 12 noon to 5 pm. He has demanded that electricity should be supplied round the clock in the headquarters under the district and at night in rural areas, so that no ruckus does not take place.
