Residents in some parts of the town today had a tough time as there was no power supply for about 10 hours.

Sharing his ordeal, a resident of Garden Villa, Singhpura, said: “There was no power supply since 8:15 am. The supply was restored after 6 pm. No local power officials were responding. We had a tough time managing our daily routine.”

Mandeep of Nagla said: “Our inverter batteries were completely drained. Most of us work from home. Owing to the power shutdown, it was another bad day.”

Residents demanded such long power shutdowns should be avoided. And if there were some scheduled cuts, they should be informed in advance.
