Raia residents corner Power dept for frequent blackouts

Agitated residents of Manora-Raia and neighbouring areas gheraoed the electricity officials at the Raia sub-station on late Tuesday night following frequent black outs in the last few days.
Curtorim MLA Reginaldo Lourenco also rushed to the substation and power was finally restored at around 12 midnight. The residents complained that the Raia sub-station is in a mess.  Reginaldo told Herald that he would convey the needs and requirements of the sub station to the Power Minister Milind Naik. ‘Last night, the circuit breaker failed, plunging many areas into darkness. Finally, we managed to restore power supply to the entire area by 12 midnight,” the MLA said. [H]
