Jamshedpur : Local BJP activists led by former party district president Binod Singh on Sunday started a 24-hour hunger strike. Around 50 BJP activists along with Singh, who is also the chief patron of Mango Nagar Vikas Samiti sat on fast at the Mango Chowk. The strike will continue till 10 am tomorrow.
�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, Mahesh Patel, resident of Transportnagar in Mango.
The entire stretch of the Mango Notified Area Committee, (MNAC) is reeling under heavy power and water crisis in the mid summer.
The local legislator Saryu Rai has took up drinking water project delay issue with the Governor and possibly it will take some time before the commissioning of the project.
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 BJP 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 blames short-supply from Ranchi’s Central Load Despatch ( CLD) while at times the local sub-station collapses due to overloading during peak hour.
