SHILLONG, MAY 29: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Wednesday assured that power supply, which has been interrupted due to heavy rainfall and strong winds caused by the Cyclone Remal, will be restored very soon.

In a video statement, Sangma shared the after impact of the cyclone and said there have been some damages in some parts of the state.

“In some parts, we have also lost one life in the Jaintia Hills region and the ex-gratia has been given to the respected family members,” he said.

“At the same time, all the damages that have taken place in different parts especially homes of individuals and their families, the necessary support has been given to them also. The administrations have acted very fast,” he added.


Stating that the state also faced challenges in terms of the power supply, the CM said, “For that also, the MeECL is really working on a war footing. The damage is very extensive but MeECL is working with large manpower and additional manpower and we are hopeful that very soon the power will be restored in most of the parts of the state. Already major parts have been done but in the next few hours or in the next few hours or maybe in the next day or two, we will see most of the power being restored back.”

Commending the quick response of the district administrations during the cyclone Remal, Sangma said, “I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the entire officials from the different departments and mostly the district administrations for really working very well. Couple of days back before the storms were about to hit us, we had taken a detailed review along with our deputy chief minister and other officials and we were very happy with the way the administration was prepared and they have acted very swiftly so I thank them and congratulate them.”

“Of course if there are any issues or people facing any specific problems, please contact the deputy commissioner or you can call at CM-Connect at 1971,” he added.
