Bhubaneswar,10/1(Odisha Samachar/IMC) – A shocking incident has come into light that the residents of Metro Satellite City Phase II near Puri Canal Road in Hanspal, are having traumatic experience without water supply for the last 11 days, thanks to the monopoly and callousness of CESU officials. The situation was attributed to the termination of power supply to their pump house by the CESU. The residents of the colony, which houses 158 families, have filed a petition before the State Human Rights Commission and urged the SHRC to arrange immediate water supply to their colony.
The water supply and other maintenance work of the colony was being managed by the builder, who also used to collect a monthly fee from the residents. However, he kept the house owners in dark about some illegal connections inside the premises. When CESU came to know about it, their Rasulgarh office disconnected the power supply to the pump house on December 31 without any prior notice. As a result, the water supply in the colony of 158 families came to a halt.
The dignified residents of the colony are facing tremendous ifficulties without proper water supply. Accusing the CESU of disconnecting the power supply to the pump house without making any alternate arrangement, they have now moved the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) under the leadership of leading Human Rights activist Mr. Akhand.
The residents have met the Commission and requested him to issue a directive to the CESU for a separate electric connection to the residents so that they don’t remain without water, which is very essential for them and their families, said Akhand. The delegation that met the State Human Rights Commission, included Dr. SK Mohanty, President of Metro Satellite City Welfare Society, Dr. Dillip Mishra, Secretary and Mr. Narayan Chhetty, Vice President.
