Power cuts likely from Today
Posted in Local News
The Ceylon Electricity Board Engineers Association warned that there will be four-phase power cuts with effect from today (January 24).
Dhammika Wimalaratne, the Secretary of the CEB Engineers Association stated that if this fuel shortage continues, steps will be taken to cut off one hour of power today (January 24) and about two hours of power off the next day.
Accordingly, the power cuts will be taking place between 6.30 PM and 9.30 PM, and under four categories. However, the Engineers’ Association stated that they have not finalized it yet, and if the total number of hours is taken, the power supply will be cut off for nearly two hours from Tuesday (January 25).
For a country abundantly blessed with waterfalls, rivers, and a ‘summer’ 365 days of the year with adequate rainfall, this is damn scandalous! The ‘Electricity Mafia’ is determined to assure that there will be an endemic power shortage in the country and it is sad to see that no regime has been able to neutralize it.
Kevin it is also sad to see a country where education is paramount has not been able to sort it out. Not only that, even the basic living requirement as food and commodities. So cram the book and pass more exams, That is my advice to brain less stupide Sri Lankes.
