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.”
