Power Minister Harbhajan Singh ETO today visited the three damaged towers at Zirakpur and took stock of the restoration work being carried out by the Powercom staff. He said people of Punjab were suffering due to the failure of the previous governments to provide basic facilities to the people of the state.

The minister said although the officials concerned tried to restore the power supply through alternative arrangements, the measures proved insufficient. He had been keeping a close watch on the situation right from the start. The top officials of his department were on the spot to restore the power supply to Zirakpur.

Harbhajan said he had asked for a thorough investigating into the reasons behind the collapse of these towers and if any official was found wanting in carrying out his duty properly, strict action would be taken against him.

The minister said he was aware that the population of Zirakpur had crossed 5 lakh and there was a need for better infrastructure. The government was fully committed to providing basic amenities like electricity to the citizens of Punjab. He said the power supply would be restored to the areas of Zirakpur shortly.

Chairman of the PSPCL Baldev Singh Saran, Director DIS Grewal, XEN Harpreet Singh Oberoi, Chief Engineer Sandeep Gupta, XEN Surjit Kumar and SDO Mandeep were among those present on the occasion.
