Hanging electricity cables in Alike village

Posted on Aug 6th, 2012 and filed under Special Report.

VITTAL: Electricity cables are hanging dangerously at a few places in Alike village of Vittal, some even just four feet above the ground level, standing as a glaring testimony to the lackadaisical approach of the MESCOM authorities.

Villagers say the electricity cables from the transformer in the land of Subba Madivala in Kolya pass through Erlumbu and are in such a suspended state in the land of Chandrashekhar Bhandari. The residents of the area say the cables have been hanging in a dangerously low position since the past one year as if they were waiting for some bait.

Hundreds of people including school going children use this road and the apathy of the MESCOM authorities has been widely condemned. Villagers say several appeals made by them to the authorities have so far fallen on deaf ears.
