Gurgaon residents protests on street against power outage
It was a frustrating time for people residing in Gurgaon, primarily residents of Sector 22, 23 and Mollahera, who came out onto the streets and protest on Thursday morning, as they were frustrated against the frequent power cut in the area. With the weather being very humid, people are finding it very difficult to cope with the regular power cuts.
It was the commuters on the Old Delhi- Gurgaon road, who were troubled as the road was blocked during the peak traffic hours. The protest was headed by the municipal councillor of the area, Ravinder Yadav.

"The power situation has been very bad all summer but it has become worse this week and the humidity levels have made it impossible to endure it anymore. We have been asking the DHBVN officials to install a transformer in our locality but they have not done so forcing us to come out on the streets to protest in this manner," said Yadav, reported The Times of India.

These residents were forced to take to the streets, as the case is always the same in India. No one listens to some polite requests, one has to be vocal and create a scene or ruckus, so as to get their things done. Earlier, they had complained to the authorities, but those complaints landed on deaf ears.

But, in spite of the protest, there is no guarantee that there would be no power cuts, but it may reduce a little. The DHBVN authorities may have promised to look into the matter, but they are also helpless, as the recent storm has only made matters worse.

The failure of the delivery of promise by the authorities would result to more such protests.
