Tripura Power Minister Takes Swift Action Against FEDCO Following demise of young man in Sabroom

In a deeply distressing event that has shaken the community of Sabroom, also the State, a young man of 32 years, Purnendu Bikash Dutta, fondly known as Biltu, tragically lost his life on Thursday night. The cause of this unfortunate incident was alleged to be the negligence of FEDCO, a private power company.

The incident has ignited a wave of anger among the residents of Sabroom, who are now demanding the immediate expulsion of FEDCO, the organization responsible for providing electricity services in the area. In response to the escalating situation, Power Minister Ratan Lal Nath made a prompt visit to the residence of the deceased on Saturday.

During his visit, the minister met with Biltu’s bereaved parents, Shubu Dutta and Preeti Dutta, and extended his heartfelt condolences. After listening to the grievances of locals, Minister Nath acknowledged the negligence on the part of FEDCO that led to the untimely demise of the young man.

Demonstrating swift action in the face of the crisis, Nath made his way to FEDCO’s Manu Bazar Office. There, he issued a stern warning to the officials involved, emphasizing the gravity of the situation. He directed the officials to ensure the provision of proper electricity across the sub-division and stressed the urgent need to repair the hanging LT lines within the next month.

Meanwhile, the locals have raised a series of allegations against FEDCO. They claim that the company’s service quality has been consistently below par over the past three to four years, marked by frequent delays and inadequate support. The residents have warned that they have endured this situation for far too long and are prepared to stage a larger movement in the coming days if necessary.

Accompanying Minister Ratan Lal Nath during his visit were MLA Mylaphru Mog, MLA Pramod Reang, and former MLA Sankar Roy, among others. Their presence underscored the seriousness with which the authorities are addressing this issue. The community now awaits concrete actions to rectify the situation and prevent such incidents in the future.
