The chairman, who says that 410 crore rupees are needed to buy fuel to suspend the power cut until the end of the A-level examination, says that he did not announce that the power cut will be suspended.
The chairman said that there was no power cut during the afternoon of the exam and if there was a power cut in any area, it was another fault and the power cut will continue at night.
