These localities included Mal, Malihabad, Mohanlalganj and Bakshi Ka Talab areas.
Power cuts were also reported in Alambagh, Chowk, Balaganj, Thakurganj, Aminabad and Yahiyaganj. Moreover, state energy minister AK Sharma inspected the two control rooms—one at Shakti Bhawan and the other at Hussainganj (customer care 1912)—of the Madhyanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Ltd (MVVNL). He appreciated outsourced staff on duty there. The minister warned the employees on strike of stern action.
“Control rooms have also been set up in each regional office and divisional office of the corporation. In view of the strike by the employees, the control room is going to play an important role in addressing the complaints of the common man,” he said.
