Saluting the workers in the power sector who have been providing 24×7 service during the nation-wide lockdown, the state power department, in association with celebrities from Tollywood and the Bengali TV industry, has made a short film to boost their morale.
The six-minute film shows vignettes of several power sector workers in various departments, working in power plants, distribution sites, offices — and some even working from home. “This is one sector that is working tediously during the lockdown to provide emergency services, even though it often is the most forgotten. We have almost 100% attendance in all our power generation plants and thousands of employees are working relentlessly far away from their homes. Hence, we though this is the least we could do to boost their morale,” said Ashim Roy Chowdhury, a senior corporate communication official of West Bengal Power Development Corporation Limited (WBPDCL), who conceptualized the film.
The film features state power minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay in a cameo, attending calls from a village in Panskura as he instructs officials to immediately attend to the crisis in the village. “The film is an attempt from our end to inform the people that we are with you in this crisis. I humbly request everyone else to follow the lockdown strictures and stay home while we from the power department fight it out on the roads to ensure your home-stay is not hampered,” Chattopadhyay says at the end of the film.
