With the increasing humidity, the Power Development Department (PDD) has also started to add to the miseries of the common people by resorting to unscheduled power curtailments during peak hours of the day.
The situation in the outskirts and remote areas is annoying as the unscheduled power cuts have made life miserable for the residents.
Haphazard outages and lack of public information appear to be the hallmarks of the State’s Power Distribution Department, despite years of load management. Power woes worsen the season’s torridness for commuters. People living in and around the city are experiencing erratic outages for durations of more than an hour.
It is very tough to manage such power cuts in this humid season and the worst thing happens when the department just acts like an audience who is silently watching the play. It becomes more difficult to manage things in such poor conditions. Food gets spoiled, refrigerators are not working, children cannot play; it’s a mess all over due to these unscheduled power cuts.
The department needs to deal with the situation and give some relief to the people who are paying heavy electricity bills regularly but still are facing unscheduled power cuts.
