Uttar Pradesh Power Employees Joint Action Committee (JAC) took out a torch rally against the privatisation of power distribution companies across the State. Demonstrators were seen shouting slogans against the privatisation move in PM Modi's parliamentary constituency Varanasi and CM Yogi's home district Gorakhpur.
