more-inCamping in the cyclone ravaged district for the last three days and overseeing the restoration work, TANGEDCO (Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation) chairman M. Saikumar is hopeful of restoring power supply across Kanniyakumari district by Friday or latest by Saturday morning. The devastation due to the cyclone was so much that in many low lying areas, the poles were uprooted and washed off. “We are erecting new structures and there were no issues with regard to material and manpower. The top priority is to provide power connections at the earliest. The TANGEDCO chairman said that he had inspected worst hit habitations, highways, municipalities and town panchayats in the district including Susindram, Variyoor, Rajavoor, Vazhukamparai, Aralavaimozhi, Kulasekaram, Pechiparai and Kothaiaru.
