Bhubaneswar, May 11 (LocalWire): Scores of people are still struggling to get basic amenities like electricity and water, nine days after cyclone Fani knocked down the infrastructure in costal Odisha.
While life is limping back to normalcy in the cities, the rural areas are still struggling to get basic facilities.
People have also complained of slow pace of distribution of relief materials in affected areas.
“While 100 per cent piped water supply have been ensured in Bhadrak and Kendrapara, we expect to provide similar supplies to other affected districts, including Puri, by May 13,” said Sanjay Kumar Singh, the public relations secretary of the state government.
Water and power have already been restored in all health facilities, while a roadmap has been prepared for restoration and electrification of affected areas with additional manpower, Singh said.
The electricity department has urged people to cooperate with the concerned officers and the line staff for early restoration of power supply.
It said any disruption may delay the restoration process.
Puri and Khurdha districts are worst affected in cyclone Fani that hit the Odisha coast on May 3.
