Students suffer as electricity plays hide and seek

DHALPUR: BJP came to power with the promise of an uninterrupted power supply. The people voted them to power. But the things have refused to change. Thousands of rural areas are still co existing in encircling darkness.  


Mention may be made of Dhalpur area in Lakhimpur district where frequent load shedding has become a practice during the last three months.


Students have been bearing the brunt of the frequent load shedding in the huge areas. School examinations are going on. HS, HSLC examinations are round the corner. But electricity keeps playing hide and seek.  

 Local residents have blamed it all on APDCL for allowing the school and college students suffering. An interrupted power supply, further has been resulting huge loss for industries, factories and business establishments. That too in the winter season where power supply is said to be sufficient.
