Prayagraj (UP), Mar 20 (PTI) The Allahabad High Court on Monday reserved its order on a PIL dealing with the issue of strike by electricity department employees of the state despite its previous order not to disrupt power supply.

Acting Chief Justice Pritinker Diwaker and Justice S D Singh were hearing the public interest litigation (PIL) moved by advocate Vibhu Rai after the electricity department staff went on strike last week.

During the course of hearing, the court took a serious note of the strike by employees of the power corporation and directed the state government to inform the court as to what monetary loss has been caused to the state as well as in other forms.
