Appeal to keep Holika Dahan away from power lines

The electricity company has appealed to keep Holika Dahan away from power lines. Madhya Pradesh Western Region Electricity Distribution Company’s managing director Amit Tomar said that electricity flows in the lines 24 hours a day. Burning bonfires under lines and cables can melt or break wires and cables. Similarly, burning of Holika near the transformer can cause a fire. Holika Dahan organisers should perform Holika Dahan by maintaining sufficient distance from power lines and transformers so that no kind of loss or accident occurs during this festival. Do not blow wet colour near lines, transformers, poles, etc, he appealed.
