The electricity corporation should take charge of the problem otherwise the residents would go for upheaval. The residents of the areas have been facing power cuts since last night.

Several electric pillars were uprooted after trees fell into transmission line. It is expected that the price of vegetables may hike. Rains continue to disrupt normal life.
