No Water, No Power: Residents of Waluj Localities in Aurangabad Endure Four Days of Darkness |

Around 10 residential localities in Sajapur in Waluj area are living in darkness as nine to ten transformers in this area have stopped working due to the wire burst for the past four days. The Irked residents marched on the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) on Monday and condemned the working of the company.

The residents in these localities had to spend dark nights for the past four days due to lack of electricity and even without water as they could not operate the electric motors. Similarly, they have to bear the scorching heat due to the severe summer and the mosquito menace, the residents claimed.

Around 9 to 10 transformers are installed for the localities of Krantinagar,

Sastiknagar, Krushnainagar, Swastik City, Sangharsh Colony and others coming under the MSEDCL CIDCO – Waluj Mahanagar Sub Station. However, a cable was damaged on May 3 due to which all the transformers stopped working. As a result, around 10 residential localities in the entire Sajapur area were in dark for the past four days.
