'SP govt responsible for poor power supply to Noida'



Noida: Annoyed over the long power cuts in Noida, a local BJP MLA on Tuesday alleged the ruling SP of meting out step-motherly treatment towards the area and threatened to stage protests if the power scenario was not improved soon.

Despite being declared a no power cut zone, Noida is witnessing seven to eight hours of power cut each day due to complete negligence of the area by the Uttar Pradesh government, BJP legislator Mahesh Sharma said here today.

Not only the locals but even the industries are suffering due to poor power supply, he said.

Sharma met Superintendent Engineer of Paschimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited C L Gupta and asked him for immediate steps to improve the power supply to Noida.

Due to the long power cuts, some industrial units are planning to move out of the state, he said.

The BJP MLA threatened to hold protest if the power supply to Noida was not improved at the earliest.
