Correspondent KOHIMA, APR 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/1/2021 1:00:30 PM IST

The State capital has been reeling under partial blackout for the past two days. While there has been load shedding in some parts of Kohima town, many colonies are without power for more than 24 hours.

When inquire about the reason behind the blackout, a power house employee attributed the power cut to repair works going on somewhere in town area, though he could not confirm any location or the nature of work that was being carried out. Another employee posted at the sub-station however said the load shedding was caused by the increase in power load.

An entrepreneur, who runs a cyber cafe at PR Hill, said his shop was totally at the mercy of power supply as alternate power supplies like inverters were able to provide backup only for a limited period of time. A lady who runs a beauty salon said since most of the equipment needed electricity, she was unable to run her shop due to power cut.  She feared that if the current situation persisted for the next few days, her business would be adversely affected.
