Bhubaneswar, June 13:
Peeved over the continuous undeclared power cut in the state, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) today protested before the Gridco office, the bulk power supplier to discoms, and resorted to road blockade.
“Undeclared power cut is going on across the state due to the inefficiency of the Odisha government and monopoly of power distribution utilities. While power cut and low voltage is making life unbearable, the Energy Minister is claiming that there is no shortage of power in the state,” said BJYM president Umakant Patnaik.
Stating that the government is giving undue favour to the discoms at the cost of people, he threatened that the BYJM would intensify the protest in the coming days if the government does not provide uninterrupted quality power in the next 24 hours.
