Mohali: The overhead web of electricity and other cables in Mohali are giving an open invitation to the mishaps as dangling electricity wires and bunches of broadband and TV network cables have worsened the situation.
Residents said, learning no lesson from the past incidents due to short-circuits, no concrete steps have been taken by the departments concerned to fix the issue of messy cables of electricity, internet, and TV network in the markets located in Mohali areas so far.
Residents and shopkeepers in Mohali said that the repeated complaints to Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) to fix the dangling cables fell on deaf ears. Due to the low height of electricity wires with naked joints, the chances of electrocution remain high.
Sharing the concern over the tangled mess of wires outside their house residents said in past several fire incidents have occurred due to short-circuits, but no safety measures have been taken so far by the department concerned to avert such mishaps in future.
Residents said, we have made several complaints about the dangling wires but our voice is not being heard, concerned officials have not even visited to find solution and at several places the wires have tilted some poles too and requested, the government must take requisite measures to avert the any type of mishap. But Who Cares???
