HYDERABAD :  It has been three days since residents of several areas across Hyderabad are living in the dark. As the floodwaters from the recent deluge are yet to recede, authorities have not restored at least 222 transformers.

TSSPDCL Chairman and Managing Director G Raghuma Reddy on Friday inspected the areas in the Saroornagar, Asmangarh and Charminar divisions. He said there is still waterlogging of three feet in Singareni Colony, Gowtham Nagar, Sarada Nagar, Kamala Nagar, Kodandaram Nagar, P&T Colony, Barkas, Maisaram, Chandrayangutta, Al Jubail Colony, Falaknuma, Indra Nagar, Jamal Nagar, Salala and many other areas. 

Cellars of several apartments in the Saroornagar division are still flooded and hence, power supply has not been restored to areas under 13 transformers. In the Charminar division too, 28 transformers remain switched off, Reddy said. 

He directed the officials to restore the supply only after carefully assessing the situation. Congratulating the employees for their efforts, he said they had tried their best over the last three days to restore the power supply.

    Floods are not due to heavy rains but due to millions of encroachments inside nalas and lakes and inside their inflow and outflow channels.
