LDV hit by power crisis

ROING, Nov 2: An electricity crisis has hit Lower Dibang Valley, with district headquarters Roing being the worst affected.
The whole district is without electricity since 25 October, even as the officials of the power department are still unable to detect the fault. The town was plunged into darkness a week ago, but the reason for the power outage has not been made public officially.
“This is unacceptable. How can the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCL) be so casual and unprepared to detect a fault in such a small section?” said a member of the public.
There is still no word from the PGCL when the power supply would be restored.
When contacted, PGCL Chief Manager BC Taye informed that the officials were still unable to detect the fault, but that efforts are on.
Roing Power AE Philip Lego informed that electricity is being supplied to the district from Assam.
“But there is a low voltage problem,” he said, adding that the district administration has been apprised of the matter.
