Angry mob ransack ASEB offices at Haflong


An angry mob ransacked the offices of Sub-Divisional Officer, Executive Engineer, Assam State Electricity Board (ASEB) and Tower & Transmission at Haflong and Lower Haflong today (Monday) in protest against the frequent load shedding and irregular power supply in Dima Hasao.


The mob damaged several computers, cash collection machine and office furniture of these offices as the staffs failed to convince the mob.


It is learnt that the people of Dima Hasao in general and of Haflong in particular were facing untold inconvenience due to the indifferent attitude of the ASEB authorities to provide proper electric supply. Haflong, the district Head Quarters of Dima Hasao requires only 5.5 MW in peak hours and 3 MW requires during the day hours but the State Load Distribution Centre(SLDC) Guwahati does not allow more than 1.5 MW, following which this artificial power crisis in Dima Hasao is reoccurrence.
