Large parts of south and west Delhi experienced power cuts after a section of BSES employees went on strike Wednesday.
“An unrecognised union has called for a strike and illegal disruption of work today. We have informed the Delhi government about this… we were largely able to ensure smooth power supply to our 38 lakh consumers… a few isolated pockets in west and south Delhi were affected… ,” said a BSES spokesperson.

The union has demanded abolition of the contractual employment system. ENS
