Ludhiana: As soon as the elections are over, the electricity cuts have started in winters only in many areas of the city providing diplomacy of politicians and false promises even before results of Punjab Assembly Polls 2017 on March 11. The city residents allege that they know well that before the elections and soon after voting power cuts would start and same is happening now. Moreover, they say that it would have been better if the elections would have taken place after summers so that they would not have to face power cuts in hot weather. But this year, they are expecting rigorous power cuts.
As the Residents of Chander Nagar and Haibowal are irked over it. A house wife in Chander Nagar Vandana said, “In morning daily power cut takes place which creates problem of water and other works. As in our area water comes only with electric motors. After that with geysers they have to get warm water, these two important works take a back seat in morning. We have to get our children ready for schools. We were aware well before time that after elections that problem of power cuts would be there.”
The residents of Haibowal voiced, ‘During the elections politicians say that give us votes to come in to power, but when they come to power, then they take the power away for 24- hours from same public. But at present, they are totally not in power as results are yet to come.” Further remarking residents said, “Instead of spending money on the addressing rallies, if they spend it on implementing planning how to improve the situation of the power in Punjab this would have been worked. It would have solved the problem of city residents who are reeling under the power crisis. It is just February and god knows what would be the situation in the month of May and June.”
