Lucknow: Villagers in Bhadarsa in Uttar Pradesh's district are going though a hard time after the city administration ordered to disconnect the electricity supply of houses those without toilets in the village.

As per a report, the ordered was given by Block Development Officer of Sarojini Nagar of Lucknow. 

However, Bhadarsa residents said that they are facing problems after electricity cut and had asked for some more time to make toilets. But BDO didn't listen to their request.

The electricity was restored after some time. 

Speaking to ANI, BDO Ajay Pratap said, "Electricity is restored but why aren't people cooperating with govt when they have means to make not 1 but even 2-3 toilets."
