Hyderabad: Students demonstration over power cut in hostel
Hyderabad: Students of BC Boys College Hostel, Amberpet, opposed at the hostel structure on Thursday, when Transco separated supply for pending Rs 6 lakh electrical power costs for the previous one year.
Around 300 pupils, together with participants of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), organized a demostration, as instantly at 4 pm power supply was separated.
Said Ravi, a pupil,”when we asked the concerned authorities the reason for disconnecting power they said they are not aware. But actually, the main reason is that for past one year Rs. 6 lakh electricity bill is pending”
Another trainee stated, “for the past many months we have been facing frequent power-cuts, but today the power supply was disconnected. The hostel officials are least bothered. Due to their negligence of not paying the bill, we students are suffering. After we visited the collector’s office, the supply was restored. But in the coming days we may face the same situation.”
