An angry crowed on Saturday noon vandalised a rural electrification samity office in Indrapul area of Patiya upazila on demand of uninterrupted power supply.

AHM Mobarak Ullah, managing director of the power supply office, said there were problems about power supply in the area due to cyclonic storm ‘Mora’ but we already have started supplying power in most of the areas since Friday.
