Localities of Arapti Wahengbam leikai and Tonjam Leikai under Keirao Assembly Constituency appealed electricity department to provide electricity which have been off since last October 22 in the said area.
Locals appealed concern authority to provide electricity for those consumers who have cleared consumer bills in view of the Board and Council exams which is commencing soon.
According to one Wahengbam Surjit Luwang, a resident of the area informed media during a press meet here at Manipur Press Club that there are around 31 electrified households in the two leikais out of which around 25 are authorised consumers. Out of the 25 authorised consumers 12 of them cleared electricity bill amount of Rs 12,000 on October 21, just one day before the current was cut off, said Surjit. When localities went to complain to concern AE officer at Lilong, they were informed that the transformer had defused and localities waited some days for repairing the transformer. When the concern power station fail to do so they again went to AE and requested to repair it by localities itself, however they were informed to clear the unclear bill of approximately Rs 3,20,000 and the department will fix the current.
