Residents protest power cuts
PANVEL: Residents of Sainagar and Koliwada along with Shiv Sena leaders and workers barged into the MSEDCL Panvel office on Friday, protesting against power cuts. Shiv Sena led by PMC councillor Prathmesh Soman presented a phone to the officials saying it would help the residents contact them. Soman said, “The residents are going through very difficult times in this heat.”
A delegation met MSEDCL executive engineer DB Gosavi. “The frequent power failures are due to the increased load on the supply,” said Gosavi. “The telephone lines were down in the area due to the road-digging work. We wrote to MTNL and got them restored.”
Power at Sainagar and Koliwada by Friday afternoon.
