KADAPA: Students staged dharna before the electrical sub-station at Yerraguntla on Friday under the aegis of All India Students Federation deploring rampant power disruptions.

AISF leaders Easwaraiah and Narayana said the power cuts during early mornings and nights were posing untold hardships to the students, who were preparing for examinations. AITUC district vice-president Gangi Reddy said though Transco officials levied power cut from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., power was being cut for six hours on the pretext of load relief.

Transco Assistant Divisional Engineer Ramabrahmam Reddy said the wide gap between the demand and supply made power cuts imperative.
