Six electricity poles collapsed near two Pushkar ghats in Bhadrachalam on Thursday. Frightened devotees ran for cover with the collapse of poles. Devotees expressed anger over the poor quality of works. About 200-metre long power cables detached from poles and fell on the ground. These electricity poles were erected 20 days ago in view of the Godavari Pushkaralu which would begin on July 14. It is learnt that poles were erected without any foundation. Ideally, each pole has to be erected to a depth of 6 to 8 feet beneath the ground.
