Employees of the power department in Uttar Pradesh’s Banda district have started wearing helmets while working in their office in the government building. Employees of the power department in UP’s Banda district said they do so to keep themselves protected in the dilapidated office.
“We don’t know when plaster from the ceiling of the dilapidated building would fall,” an employee said. The employees claimed many of them have got injured in the past but nothing has done to repair the building.
The executive engineer of the power meter department Satya Prakash said he had written letters several times to the authorities, drawing their attention to the problem.
The pictures, which went viral on Monday, clearly depict the bad condition of the building. The roof has holes in it. Chief engineer KK Bharadwaj too admitted that the building was in poor shape and said the repair would begin soon.
