It is winter and usually power situation in Okhla remains stable. However, several residents in the locality have lamented that power is playing truant in the locality. Okhla Vihar resident Imran said the situation of electricity.
These days the situation is not good as power is going from time to time and at times sometime for long hours too, he said.
Another Abul Fazal Enclave resident concurred with him. A housewife said the situation is really bad and we don’t understand why the power situation has deteriorated in winter when there is no major issue of peak power consumption in winter.
The locality had battled long hour power cut during summer last year. Shaheen Bagh was the worst hit then. However, the situation was addressed by putting new transformer in several places. But it appears that things have not improved up to the residents’ expectation.
Residents, who bank on inverter, don’t feel the heat. It is because of the inverter that many residents bank on residents don’t come to know about regular power cut in the locality, lamented a resident on the condition of anonymity.
With civic elections round the corner, many residents had expected that things might improve on this front. But that is not the case as Okhla continues to be a neglected locality with broken roads, water logging a perennial issue, traffic snarl and roadside encroachment being a norm in the locality.
