New Delhi, A shocking case has come to light in Uttarakhand’s Chandauli district. Here the power supply of feeder number 3 and 6 coming out of Chandsi sub station was suddenly stopped. As a result, there was widespread chaos due to the sudden disruption of power supply in thousands of homes.
Due to rain of complaints on the phone of the department, even the electricians were running. Despite checking all the machines in all directions, without finding any fault, even the electricians started scratching their heads. After consultation-suggestion-inspection and great brainstorming by many experts, the real reason was revealed when the panel of the transformer was checked.
Many people were disturbed when the power supply of feeder number 3 and 6 of Chandsi sub station was suddenly stopped. At first, the staff could not find the cause of the power outage. But after checking the panel, it was found that the cause of this power supply disruption is a lizard.
A dead lizard was found in the panel. The report said that the lizard had caused a short circuit and damaged both the feeders, causing the entire power supply to shut down.
This was immediately reported by the employees to the departmental officials, where on their instructions the supply of the transformer was stopped and the dead lizard was taken out. Regarding this incident, the electricity workers said that the power supply was stopped due to this lizard.
After workers removed the dead lizard and spent hours repairing the panels to restore power supply, residents in the area breathed a sigh of relief. Electricity workers were also arrested. Repairs were carried out by the electricity department crew for more than 1 hour, after which the power supply was restored.
It is to be noted that due to this incident, the electricity workers went on strike for 4 days. Had they been on strike, it would have taken time to restore power. The employees were staying away from work but the protest was over and the problem was resolved after this major defect and the hardships faced by the common man.
