people spending the night by candlelight
Due to going on strike of 500 electrical workers of the district, not only in rural but also in urban areas, a significant impact has been seen. People were seen struggling with the scarcity of water. Due to lack of supply, the inverters of the houses also left after a while. More than 24 hours have passed in many localities, but the power supply could not be started. Because of which people had to spend the night with the help of candles. At the same time, electricity was also used in government offices through generators.
Administration mobilized to restore power supply
In order to continue the electricity system of the district smoothly, the administration took the help of technical teams, in which ITI diploma holders were involved. There are 43 big power stations in the district, through which electricity reaches 1.5 lakh electricity consumers in the district, but people could not get electricity due to blown transformers and local faults. At the same time, City Magistrate Virendra Kumar Maurya told that continuous efforts are being made regarding power supply. Electricity has also been started in many areas.
Toll free number remained busy since 1912
To redress the complaints of electricity consumers, 1912 toll free number has been issued at the government level. Through which people can register their complaints, but the problem is that even this number is not useful. At the same time, the toll free number 05162257090 issued at the local level by the district administration in Jalaun also kept telling the coster busy. This was the question in the mind of the people, after all, with which responsible officer should they complain.
