Ganjam celebrates Dark Diwali as no signs of power restoration

Ganjam (Odisha), Oct 31: Its been a fortnight now, but the power situation in the cyclone-hit Ganjam district remains the same. P K Chowdhary, the Managing Director of Southco, a power distribution company said,"It'll take another fortnight for the power scenario to be normal. We are trying to restore electricity in some of the block headquarters towns in the district before Diwali."

Berhampur's situation is better as power supply has been restored in 90 percent of the town, covering 15 of 22 blocks and a few council headquarters so far. Nevertheless, power in 400 of 475 gram panchayat headquarters is yet to be restored. "Southco officials are working hard to bring the situation to normalcy," said Chowdhary.
