Arunachal: No electricity in four districts for past two weeks

four districts in arunachal are in dark

Lower Subansiri, Kurung Kumey, Kra Daadi, and Kamle are the four districts in the state that have been in the dark for the past two weeks.

According to sources that the whole Lower Subansiri area has been without power since October 12. According to reports, it has had a negative impact on all sectors, including government offices, private organisations, schools, and hospitals.

Patients and staff at Hapoli’s Gyati Taka General Hospital have allegedly placed panic calls to the district medical authority, requesting that an alternative power source be arranged.

“It has come to my knowledge through social media that Gyati Taka General Hospital is in darkness without light. We expect our district hospital to at least have generators for emergencies. I am willing to donate 10 liters of petrol if your good office doesn’t have a budget,” wrote Habung Aape, a social activist at Ziro, taking a dig at the authorities.

Residents of Kurung Kumey, Kra Daadi, and Kamle districts, as well as the Mengio region of Papum Pare district, are said to be in a similar position.

The entire blackout of these four districts is due to the failure of a 132/33KV R-Phase Transformer at Dillopolyang Power Grid Sub-Station, according to Hapoli Power Division Executive Engineer Dogin Tade.

After a coordination meeting, Power Grid officials and the district administration, led by Lower Subansiri Deputy Commissioner Somcha Lowang, allegedly visited the Dillopolyang sub-station.

The faulty transformer has been replaced, and the restoration is virtually complete, according to EE Dogin Tade. The department sources added that the power supply line would be restored at the earliest.
