Okhla goes powerless a few days after Eid. The power situation has deteriorated in Okhla’s Abul Fazal Enclave with residents complaining of regular power cuts. Many residents lamented that after Ramzan the power situation in the locality has deteriorated once again in the background of several transformers being installed in the locality, mainly in Shaheen Bagh where residents had raised hue and cry over perennial long hour power cut.
“The power situation has been hit. It was in the late night when for hours there was no electricity in some parts of Abul Fazal Enclave with residents being forced to stay out their house due to humid weather. Since the morning the situation has not improved with power going on and off giving residents tough time when the there is such a humidity in the weather that one cannot think about living without fan or AC,” said Rozy Khanam, a stay-at-home mother.
She is not the only resident to complain about poor electricity service. Other residents too lamented about poor power service. It is another story that many residents are not able to notice it as a large number of residents have inverter in their flats to battle summer.
“We hope that things might improve soon,” said Naseem Ur Rahman.
