BLACK­OUT IN THREE GEWOGS IN SAM­DRUP JONGKHAR

Business Bhutan - - Nation -

The three gewogs of Lauri, Serthig and Langchen­phu in Sam­drup Jongkhar have been liv­ing in the dark with­out power sup­ply for nearly two weeks.

Power fail­ures are com­mon in these gewogs with the black­out last­ing as long as a month some­times. The party pres­i­den­tial and rep­re­sen­ta­tive de­bates are tak­ing place and the peo­ple in the af­fected gewogs have not been able to watch or lis­ten to any of it. Lack of road and swollen rivers on the way are pre­vent­ing Bhutan Power Cor­po­ra­tion (BPC) of­fi­cials from get­ting to places where the dam­aged power lines are.
