‘Powerless’ in Okhla for one more day

Residents in this part of Okhla are facing hardship for one more day with no power supply in the locality since morning on Tuesday.

Residents lamented that for the last three days power supply is being disrupted due to work being done nearby.

It is understood that a new transformer and other machines are being parked in G block in Abul Fazal Enclave, leading to long-hour power cut. What is surprising is the inordinate delay in fixing things up.

A resident said: “We are happy that power situation might improve in the locality in summer. But what is painful is that we are faced with hardship due to regular power cut for the last three days. It would have been better had residents been informed in advance. Just see I might face water crisis as it was only in early morning when we had run our water machine.”

Chances are that once things are fixed residents won’t face hardship.

Moreover, the discoms are also preparing to meet summer power demand that is expected to increase manifold as weather increases.

Last year things were really bad in the locality with regular long-hour power cuts, we hope that this summer things might improve, said another resident Naseem Ur Rahman.
