Bescom lashed out for frequent power cuts during election results update
According to Bescom, the power disruptions were caused because of the rain the previous day which had subsequently damaged the electric poles and transformers.
BENGALURU: On Thursday, frequent power cuts across the city, during the disclosing of the election results, rattled the residents as they were forced to look for updates on their mobile phones.
Reportedly the power disruptions through the day had occured in Mahadevapura, HAL, Bellandur, Marathahalli, HSR Layout, Ganganagar, Nagarbhavi, Bommasandra, Indiranagar, Yelahanka, Shanthi Nagar, Nagawara, Kamakshipalya, Peenya, Tavarekere, Jayanagar, Basavanagar and HRBR Layout.
Harish Goud, a techie and resident of HSR Layout had said, "Power cuts began as early as 8am and kept coming and going several times. I decided to head to office early to watch the election results."
To lash out BESCOM the issue was quickly taken to the social networking platform of Twitter for the unscheduled power cuts.
"Wonder if some bhakt at @Namma-BESCOM is celebrating the win by switching on & off our power. Power outage for the nth time tdy and no rains in sight," a Bengalurean tweeted.
According to Bescom, the power disruptions were caused because of the rain the previous day which had subsequently damaged the electric poles and transformers. "Emergency repair work had to be carried out on Thursday after the damage. Hence, power supply had to be interrupted," said a Bescom official.
