Port Blair, May 19: The Member of Parliament, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Shri. Kuldeep Rai Sharma has requested a permanent solution to prolonged power cuts in Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

In a letter addressed to the Chief Secretary, A&N Administration, the Member of Parliament mentioned that in almost every part of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, people are facing multiple power cuts lasting several hours, making daily life exceedingly difficult.

He said that the temperature in these islands has risen sharply in the months of March, April and May, exacerbating the discomfort caused by these power cuts, especially during the summer vacation period.

The Member of Parliament further said that due to power cuts, small business owners, who cannot afford generators or inverters are finding it extremely challenging to maintain their operations under these circumstances.

Given the severity of this issue, he requested the Chief Secretary to urgently address this matter and find a permanent solution to the power crisis that the Andaman & Nicobar Islands face almost every year.
