Wastage of power: Streetlights not switched off during daytime

Wastage of power: Streetlights not switched off during daytime. At a time when Okhla is battling unscheduled power outages, many residents were appalled to notice that several streetlights on Tikona Park were not switched off during daytime.

“It was at about 1 pm I was passing through the road and noticed that streetlights were not switched off. What a wastage of power at a time when regular power outages in the locality has plunged the locality into the darkness,” said Rozy Khanam.

This is not one of incident in the locality. Many residents pointed out that a few months ago street lights during daytime were not switched off. Also, residents have been demanding more streetlights in some parts of Okhla, like on Kalindi Kunj road that gets pitch dark at night time leading to several accidents.

For long residents have been demanding for installation of streetlights on this stretch but with little success, said a resident.
