Senior BJP leader Lalji Tandon and BJP MLA from Varanasi Shyamdev Narayan Chaudhary has also met Akhilesh Yadav and raised the issue of poor power situation in the district.
However, the UP CM, cited a totally different reason behind this decision by the government to supply an uninterrupted power to the district.
"Varanasi is a religious city which is also very important centre of culture and education. A large number of national and international pilgrims and tourists visit the city. The SP government's decision will ensure the comfort of the visitors to the city," said Akhilesh Yadav, as reported by India Today.
Over the poor situation of electricity supply in the state, Akhilesh Yadav has to say that the state was getting only 4500 megawatt at the moment but presently expecting 6082 megawatt of electricity from the central pool.
