Vankhede said that 90 % of the total population in area is dependent on farming activities. As the season for rabi crop has begun, the farmers are distressed by the power supply issues. He alleged that the department does not ensure timely power supply due to which farmers are forced to irrigate the fields late at night. Apart from this, farmers are already suffering the failure of kharif crop and the constant pressure from the department to recover the electricity bills has worsened their situation.

He demanded to bring changes in power schedule and provide continues powers supply for 12 hours in daytime for irrigation purposes.
