Ashok Khajuria, on this occasion, criticized the state government, PDD in particular, for imposing power cuts in these festival days season. He said that the Navratras are most sacred days for hindus and during all these days people perform religious rituals. There is rush of people in temples. The people also perform pooja etc. in early and late evening hours and there is dire need of electricity. The imposition of cuts during these hours is totally unjustified and the department should not create problems for the people of particular faith.
