Amid all the crisis, students and working professionals are finding it difficult to cope with the sudden change due to incessant power cuts. Several professionals including teachers and employees of IT companies from different parts of Hyderabad have complained about frequent power disruptions.  

According to a report in the New Indian Express, both students and professionals are enduring a difficult time due to power cuts. Most of the complaints have primarily come from Hyderabad's Chandanagar, Himayatnagar, Banjara Hills, Manikonda, and Gachibowli area. 

Also, one of the main reasons behind such power cuts is deemed to be thunderstorms and high-speed winds which have stormed the city over the past few days, Express further reported.

Amid all the coax, the Telangana government does not agree with the frequent power cuts but boasts of uninterrupted power supply across the State. 

While speaking to Express, 25-year-old Swati, a resident of Huda Colony in Chandanagar, said, "My mother is an English teacher and every day she has to conduct online classes, which is already difficult, and now these multiple power cuts even for 10-15 minutes are disrupting her classes."

Meanwhile, a resident of Himayatnagar, Zaid, said, “Since morning there is no power in our area, and we are not getting any response from the helpline number, what are we supposed to do?”

When officials where asked about these issues amid the crisis, operations director of Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSSPDCL) Srinivasa Reddy told Express that they are aware of these problems and are continuously working to minimise power cuts. 

Further justifying on the issue, Reddy added that during monsoon season, power cuts happen due to falling of trees too. Also, the concerned department has rectified it within hours.

Later giving assurance on the work culture, Reddy stated that the department is fully prepared with all the required staff and backup equipment; every issue will be looked into.
