Taking prompt action after a report published in this daily recently, the Electricity Division of Rangat in Middle Andaman has initiated steps to replace the dangerously leaning pole at Dhalli Khethi, Rangat in Middle Andaman. As per reports, the Power Department deployed staff immediately after the newspaper report and the sloping pole was brought down and transmission lines were shifted. Works are now on to install a new pole in the area. The quick action by the electricity department has drawn appreciation from the local population in the region.
EOI recently reported about a dangerously tilted electricity pole located at Dhalli Khethi, Rangat in Middle Andaman. The insecure power pole built of concrete with numerous electrical fitting and dangling high tension wires installed here was sloping at an angle and seemed to have outlived its life. It posed a risk to the lives of commuters and children frequenting the park nearby.
