Habiganj city is in darkness due to power outage
The power outage has become a major problem in Habiganj city. Even after applying for the solution, the city dwellers are not getting any proper solution. It was learned that there has been a power outage “35 times in 24 hours” in the city.
When asked, Power Development Board (PDB) said there was a problem in the 33KV line of the district. Officers and employees are working sincerely for the solution.
It has been found out that city dwellers are facing suffering due to the increase in the intensity of heat since the beginning of Baishakh (Bangla month). The power outage, in the meantime, has made their sufferings to an extreme level for the last two days. There were 30-35 power outages from Thursday night to midnight on Friday.
The victims alleged if there is no permanent solution to this problem soon, it will be difficult to survive.
It was seen on the spot that the circuit of the control room of PDB in the Shahjibazar area of the city was burnt. Besides, the insulator has burst at one place in the line, resulting in the power outage repeatedly.
Habiganj PDB’s executive engineer Md. Abdul Majid said they were trying to solve the problem. “We are determined to provide the uninterrupted power supply. The power supply to the city will be cut off from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday and work will be done on the 33KV line,” he added.
