Power discoms use social media to discourage use of metal-coated string for kite flying
Using metal-coated 'manja' for flying kites can endanger lives, besides disrupting electricity supply, power discom BSES warned.
Power discoms are using social media to deter the use of metal-coated string, 'manja', for kite flying, which picks up ahead of the Independence Day and festivals like Raksha Bandhan.
"Widespread use of metal-coated 'manja', which is a good conductor of electricity, poses a great danger to not only the person flying the kite, but may also disrupt the electricity supply," a BSES spokesperson said.
"A social media campaign to sensitize consumers and children has been launched. Simple tips on precautions to be taken while kite flying is being disseminated through a short, three-minute-long film," the BSES spokesperson said.
The TPDDL has also launched a mass sensitization drive across its distribution areas in the north and north-west Delhi.
