The populace of Namrei 33-kv power sub-station in the remote north of Manipur's Ukhrul district is yet to receive electric power although the problem detected in between Tallui to Namrei has been fixed on June 13.

The villages under the said station had been deprived of power since May this year seriously impacting students with several of the schools undergoing exams. 

Sources said that power have reached the station. However, in addition to Namrei, the rests of the villages receiving power from the station are still yet to get current.

Speaking to the Imphal Free Press, one Akhui S, 70, lamented that he misses the opportunity to speak to his son who is serving in the Indian army and is posted in a sensitive zone.  

"My mobile battery is dying in a few minutes from now," a visibly emotional Akhui poured out, who wants to speak to his son and share about their lives.

There are several people like Akhui who would want to connect and reach out to their near and dear ones, apart from daily wage earners and youths who totally depend on current for their livelihoods. 

Sources said that 'conductor snapped' between Talui and Namrei sub-station was already fixed on 13 June.

When this IFP Correspondent contacted the Line manager and station officer of Namrei to confirmed whether consumers receiving power from this line would start getting uninterrupted supply, the concerned officer couldn't be contacted, although their contact was working perfectly.
