ITANAGAR, Jul 21: 


Claiming that Mechukha Township is reeling under darkness for the last five consecutive days causing numerous hardships to the public, the Mechukha Sub-Division Youth Welfare Association (AMSDYWA), in a representation to the Additional Deputy Commissioner, Mechukha, has demanded for immediate restoration of power supply.

According to sources, the main transformer in the town was burnt down on the night of July 16 last resulting in serious power failure in the picturesque town.

Coming down heavily on the department concerned for allegedly failing to restore the power supply, the Association alleged that the department is not initiating any measure to restore the power as most of the officials and staff are out of station since last 5-6 month.

Expressing strong resentment over the erratic BSNL services at Mechukha for the last couple of weeks owing to which the tourist hotspot is cut-off from the rest of the world, the Association requested the ADC to take up the matter with BSNL authority. The Association claimed that at present the entire BSNL office in the town is manned by a mason named Hazarika who is illiterate. It questioned how an illiterate man is assigned to operate the technical system?

Further, the Association urged the ADC to direct the Bharti Airtel Telecommunications Company to immediately activate Airtel services at Mechukha. It claimed that Airtel tower was installed at Mechukha town one year ago but till date the company has not started the services causing lots of problems to public.

It also asked the Bharti Airtel Telecommunications Company to activate the services at the earliest or else they will dismantle the tower and invite another private telecom Service at Mechukha.    

Meanwhile, the Association fervently requested the ADC to take up the matter with all concerned and address the grievances of public at the earliest failing which it threatened to launch democratic movement in the town.
