Mayabunder, Sept. 22: Outraged with the irregular power supply for long hours, which has been continuing since almost a year, the residents of Karmatang IX and X of Mayabunder today gathered at the Site Office of the Electricity Department, protesting against the ignorant behaviour of the department.

Around 40 villagers had gathered in front of the Electricity Site Office today at 9.00 am. Upon reaching, the person leading the villagers called Shri Abdul Siddique, Ex-Pramukh, Mayabunder to raise the issue before the concerned authorities. The villagers complained that the problem of low voltage and regular power cuts for long hours has made their lives miserable. The villagers also complained that in spite of long hours of power cut, when the villagers contacted the Site Office, their calls are not attended or given some reason to avoid them.

Observing the agitated villagers, the duty staff of the Site Office informed the Junior Engineer, Shri M.A. Mansoor. The Junior Engineer immediately reached the spot and instructed his team to proceed to Karmatang to check the issue.

Following today’s incident, Abdul Siddique has written to the Assistant Engineer, Electricity Department, Mayabunder demanding an immediate solution to the problems faced by the villagers of Karmatang.
