A power cut at the 12th convocation of the Maharaja Sriram Chandra Bhanja Deo University in Odisha disrupted President Droupadi Murmu’s speech.

A power cut at the 12th convocation of the Maharaja Sriram Chandra Bhanja Deo University in Odisha disrupted President Droupadi Murmu’s speech.


The power snag happened when President Droupadi Murmu was addressing the audience at the event. The convocation took place in Baripada in the Mayurbhanj district of Odisha on Saturday. The lights went off at 11:56 am for around 9 minutes and came back at 12:05 pm. But, this did not affect the President. Since the mic system remained undisturbed, she went on with her speech even during the power cut. Even the audience listened to her patiently, despite nothing being visible. “…power is playing hide and seek”, she said. President Murmu, who herself belongs to Odisha, spoke in her mother tongue at the convocation.

Blaming himself for the power cut, Vice-chancellor SK Tripathy apologized for the ‘unfortunate incident’. While expressing his regret, he said, “We are ashamed, and will certainly launch a probe into the incident. Action will be taken against those found responsible. The state-owned Industrial Development Corporation Limited supplied the generator for the event. We will ask them what was the reason behind the glitch”.

President Draupadi Murmu also expressed displeasure in a very polite tone due to power failure.


The Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Tata Power Northern Odisha Power Distribution Limited (TPNODL), Bhaskar Sarkar stated that there was no distribution disruption in the hall. He guessed that the glitch could have been apparently due to certain defects in the electrical wiring.
