Load shedding: Telangana fire burns Maharashtra power office

Mumbai, Oct 11: Protesting against maximum power cut in the state, an angry mob ransacked Maharashtra power distribution company offices and set fire the furnitures of the offices on Monday, Oct 10.

It seems that the fire that has been burning Telangana region since last 28 days, has reached out to Maharashtra. It is being reported that the electricity crisis has been escalated over the shortage and disruption of daily coal supply from Orissa and Andhra Pradesh.

Orissa has been hit by a massive flood and Andhra Pradesh has come to a standstill over the ongoing strike for a separate state - Telangana.

Maharashtra has been suffering from load shedding for 11 hours per day. Media reports also quoted officials from the power office as stating that it will introduce staggering load shedding of up to 16 hours a day a week for industries from Wednesday.

However, Maharashtra is not the lone state which is affected by maximum load shedding over Telangana protest and Orissa flood. Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and several other states are also facing similar kind of trouble over power cuts.
