Even be­fore the start of sum­mers, the res­i­dents of the eastern part of the na­tional Cap­i­tal have started to feel the heat as the Delhi gov­ern­ment fails to pro­vide a proper sup­ply of elec­tric­ity in the area. Res­i­dents al­lege that the power flow is stopped for hours in ev­ery­day.

The res­i­dents of Preet Vi­har and Gandhi Na­gar area of East Delhi al­lege that for over five days the sup­ply of elec­tric­ity has been con­tin­u­ously in­ter­rupted and on a daily ba­sis the power sup­ply re­mains shut for about four to five hours.

Ev­ery day the res­i­dents have been fac­ing sev­eral power out­ages with­out any prior in­ti­ma­tion by the au­thor­i­ties leav­ing them help­less.

Al­though the au­thor­i­ties had stated to have ex­tra power for this sum­mer in their Sum­mer Ac­tion Plan, the re­al­ity seems to be nowhere near the plan.

“In the Sum­mer Ac­tion Plan, the Delhi gov­ern­ment had promised to pro­vide full power sup­ply and it had es­ti­mated ex­tra power with them but even be­fore the sum­mer has started with we are fac­ing power cuts for so many hours in a day,” said BS Vohra, pres­i­dent URJA, fed­er­a­tion of RWAs.
