'No electricity for last 6 days': Kolkata locals protest for post cyclone Amphan relief

Locals blocked a road in Kolkata's Baghajatin area on May 26 to demonstrate a protest against administration's negligence against post cyclone 'Amphan' help in the state.

They demanded restoration of electricity and water supply as their daily lives have been badly hit due to the cyclonic storm.

One of the locals said, "It is being reported in media that electricity has been restored here but we don't have electricity and water since last 6 days.

We are suffering.

We haven't received any help from administration." Cyclone 'Amphan' crossed West Bengal-Bangladesh coasts between Digha (WB) and Hatiya Islands (Bangladesh) close to Sundarbans on May 20.
