Kanpur DM writes to UP power ministry over power cuts
Kanpur, Jul 2: Expressing his concern over the frequent power cuts in Kanpur, the District Magistrate has written a letter to the Principal Power Secretary of Uttar Pradesh to end the emergency power roasting in the area.

Roshan Jacob, DM, Kanpur, asked for fixed interval of power cuts in the city owing to the problems faced by the people, especially the Muslims who are fasting during Ramzaan, in a letter sent to the power ministry yesterday. The official noted that owing to the sensitive nature of the city and the commencement of Ramzan, a new roaster for power cuts was formulated as per which electricity is cut from 5 to 6 and 10 to 11 in the morning as well as 1 to 3 in the afternoon.

However, apart from the roaster, abrupt power shortages are being reported from the area, the letter added. The District Magistrate also asked the police administration to take the cases related to power cuts seriously and reach the spot immediately for maintaining the law and order situation.
