to statement

Pankaj Kumar Pandey, Managing Director of Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) has termed the statement of Srinivasapura MLA Ramesh Kumar as ‘highly deplorable’. Mr. Ramesh Kumar had told the people to target Bescom officials who take action against illegal and unauthorised connection. In a release, Mr. Pandey said that illegal and unauthorised connection amounts to theft under the Electricity Act and is a punishable offence.

“Bescom has made every effort to educate the urban and rural local body officials to apply for electrical connections and it gives such connection the highest priority,” he said. — Staff Reporter
