 The Longsa Village Students’ Union (LVSU) Wokha has appealed to the Wokha Power department executive engineer to look into the matter of Longsa village, along with the numerous surrounding villages, living in total darkness (complete power outage) for almost a month now. 

In a letter to the executive engineer, LVSU president Chenithung Ezung and general secretary Lichumo Kikon said that the situation had seriously impacted the normal living conditions of the villagers making their day to day life very difficult.

 “The whole society and system are paralyzed and it has become a headache thereby obstructing our daily routine” they lamented. 

The letter pointed out that Longsa village was a hub for small scale industries and young entrepreneurs, and the power outage had led to drastic loss of production. 

Citing two specific instances (stone quarry workers and one entrepreneur), LVSU sought to highlight how some had either been rendered jobless or were losing production. Further, it said that students were the worst sufferers, affecting their performance, since most of them do not have artificial means to produce electricity.

“The union would also like to request your esteem authority to investigate the root cause for the failure of the transformer” the letter said.

The union expressed hope that the work would be expedited to resolve this problem as soon as possible.
