Nongpoh: The people of Nongpoh and neighbouring areas are suffering due to poor and interrupted power supply. To make matter worse the MeECL hiked its rate and collects regularly the power fees from consumers. When people complains from time to time the Power agency shows its indifferent attitude citing ironical reason to too much rain in summer and too less water in winter.
This indifferent attitude and exploiting nature of the Agency irked the HNYF, Northern Region, to the point that it served the ultimatum that if the situation remains unattended it will one day shut down the Office of the MeECL located at Nongpoh.
It may be noted that such type of complaints are also heard in different regions of the state. There must be something wrong and chronic in the system and its management. The government should not keep a blind eye but show commitment to alleviate the suffering of the people in this regard.
