Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Shyamdev Chowdhary was on a fast for the past four days demanding 24X7 power supply to the temple town. Chowdhary was on Monday brought to Lucknow after his condition deteriorated and a meeting was fixed with the Chief Minister.

Accompanied by former Lucknow Lok Sabha member Lalji Tandon, the legislator met Yadav at his office where he was assured that the temple town will get 24x7 power supply.

A statement released by the Chief Minister's office, said that apart from being a religious and cultural centre, Varanasi was also a centre of learning and education. Thus the decision was taken to facilitate the large number of tourists who visit the town.
