Bhatkal: The furious Bhatkal Block Congress Committee took out a protest rally against the frequent power failure in Bhatkal and locked up the HESCOM office in agitation.

Speaking on the occasion, the Bhatkal MLA JD Naik demanded the twenty-four hours of uninterrupted electricity supply in Bhatkal. Interpreting failure of BJP Government, he said, "Despite the increase in electricity rates, people here are paying bills on time without objection-. If the electricity department needs more money, he was ready to collect donations from the people in order to seek uninterrupted 24-hour power supply, he added.

Demanding an improvement in power supply, the Congress leader Rama Moger, threatened the HESCOM officers. �Today we have just given an indication by locking up the electric office as a protest. If there is no improvement in the situation within a month, then we will organize a dharna at electric office by locking it up the entire day�, he warned.

The protest rally was taken out from the Bhatkal Circuit House at 11am, which was led by the Bhatkal MLA JD Naik. The protestors raised slogans against BJP government and the minister of energy Shobha Karandlaje. Taking a round of Shamshuddin circle, the rally proceeded to Sagar road HESCOM office. Later the office was locked up and the Congress leaders addressed the protestors.

A memorandum was presented to the HESCOM engineer on the occasion.

Congress president Kumar Nayak, Vitthal Naik along with other Congress leaders were present on the occasion
