    Jamshedpur, June 13: Local JMM activists led by former party secretary Bahadur Kisku staged a demonstration at JUVNL general managers office in Bistupur on Monday. The activists handed a memorandum demanding better power supply in Jugsalai and Mango along with other fringe areas.

    “In most part of the area electricity supply is not there and even in some of the locality where there is power supply is irregular. The years old electricity wires and poles are in abject condition with incident of power cuts being taking place frequently in summer,” informed, Kisku.

    The entire stretch of the Mango Notified Area Committee, (MNAC) is reeling under heavy power and water crisis in the mid summer. However, with regard to the electricity the scenario is far from improving as large population is solely dependent on limited sets of transformers in the area.

    The pitiable condition of the electricity wires and poles add more to the power woes of the Mango residents.
    The situation in places like Govindpur, Jugsalai, Karandih and Mango become worse during the peak summer season as the residents fail to get even 5-6 hours of electricity supply.

    Citing examples of poor power supply, the senior JMM leader said that through the agitation they also want to give a message to the chief minister, who claims to improve the power scenario.

    With regard to the electricity the scenario is far from improving as large population is solely dependent on limited sets of Jharkhand Urja Vikas Nigam Limited transformers in the area. The pitiable condition of the electricity wires and poles add more to the power woes of the residents.

    Meanwhile, the authorities of Jharkhand Urja Vikas Nigam Limited blame short-supply from Ranchi’s Central Load Dispatch (CLD), while at times the local sub-station collapses due to overloading during peak hour.
