For hours together, locals from Thanamandi on Wednesday blocked main road and protested against Power Development Department for its failure to restore power supply in an affected portion of the town.

Locals assembled on Thanamandi-Shahdra Shrief Chowk in late morning hours and blocked it for traffic, raising slogans against the department. 

They said the PDD has failed to repair one of the faulty power transformers of the area and people are living in darkness. 

For hours together, locals didn't allow movement of traffic on both Thanamandi road and Thanamandi-Shahdra road.

 However no civil administration officer reached the spot to listen to the grievance of people.

Later a police team reached the spot and pacified the situation, assuring that the issue has been put before district administration which has assured to solve it soon.
