Rajbiraj, Aug. 22: The resumption of electric power supply to urban and rural parts of Saptari district will take some time, according to local authorities here.
The power supply was severed in the areas worst hit by the flooding after the Khando river breached its bank. Complaints have been pouring in from the locals of Rampuramalhaniya, Sakarpura, Belhi, Hariharpur, Didhawa, Kamalpur, Matigadhi, Bisahariya and Porta among dozens of villages.
The electric poles and wires have submerged in the water, and on top of that roads have collapsed in the excessive downpours of the past weeks resulting in the delay in efforts to restore power supply, according to Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Central Distribution Branch Chief Ram Udgar Sah.
Most of the electric poles were toppled off their positions in the flooding while six transformers have broken down in excessive rain. RSS
