Bengaluru: A number of areas in Bengaluru will face power outages on Tuesday (October 12), state-run Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Limited (BESCOM) announced on its social media handles.
This development came hours after Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai said he had urged the Centre to increase the supply of coal to the state by four racks.
