Port Blair, May 26: The Port Blair City Area Committee of the CPI (M) has started a door-to-door campaign and corner meetings from today (26.05.2023) at Port Blair town against the curtailment of drinking water and electricity cut at Port Blair and rural South Andaman areas. 

Today the programme was carried out at Haddo area. During the campaign, CPI (M) highlighted the failure of the BJP-led central government and its Administration and BJP-ruled Port Blair Municipal Council and Congress MP from the Islands to provide water and electricity to the people. People are facing unexplainable difficulties as water is supplied once in seven days while power cut is resorted to 6 to 7 hours daily. CPI (M) leaders explained to the people that due to lack of foresightedness and planning on the part of the central government and PBMC, such a situation has arisen in the islands. 

D Ayyappan, Secretary, State Orgnaising Committee, D. Laxman Rao, State Secretariat Member and NKP Nair, Port Blair Area Committee Member addressed the corner meetings.
