NPF flays Govt for deplorable power supply


Dimapur, September 10: The Naga People’s Front (NPF) has castigated the present deplorable power supply in the State with no sign of relief from the concerned department “as there is not a single day that passed without power break down”.
Stating that Nagaland has never faced such kind of power scarcity in the recent years, the NPF in a release held the present PDA Government responsible and answerable to the people for the “recent chaotic development” in the power sector.
“NPF would like to point out that unlike the dry season, there can never be an excuse on lean season as the same power engineers were there in the department along with its staff making all effort for good power supply in the state and the consumers will be clearing their dues as before,” it said.
“Power consumption may have little more increase but there is always a state power purchase system which can never be decrease at all. The summer rain or for that matter, the inclement weather are natural features that passed every year, yet power supply in the state was never like this year under the PDA Government.”
The NPF accused the Government of the day of becoming very callous and not taking due cognizance to improve electricity supply but remain complacent to the distress of the people of the State. It urged the PDA Government to attend to the basic necessities of the people and suggested the State Government to be more emphatic and understanding towards the plight of the people.
