Power to people or fooling the people? Power supply conundrum in UP

“Power to the people: 22-hour supply to Varanasi, Azamgarh” – TOI.

I was not able to believe my eyes. What is happening? Even an announcement for 22 hours electricity supply to a famous district headquarter is coming in the home page of a national newspaper. Another area marked for 22 hour power supply is Azamgarh (constituency of SP chief). Interestingly, both are constituencies of famous politicians.

Other areas which are getting power for longer hours are “Mainpuri (primary constituency of Mulayam), Etawah (home town of SP supremo), Kannauj (the constituency of Mulayam's daughter-in-law Dimple Yadav) and Rampur (assembly constituency of Azam Khan)”.

What is this? UP is a banana republic or what? What about those unfortunate UP constituencies which didn’t elect any famous politicians? Don’t they have any right to get electricity?
