Aurangabad: This city in central Maharashtra, earmarked for development as a smart town, is in dark for the last three days after the electricity-supplying company snapped connection to street lights over non-payment of Rs 25-crore dues by the local civic body.

Sources in state-run power firm MSEDCL said unless the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) pays the pending Rs 25-crore bill, electricity supply to street lights would not be restored.

 

Aurangabad, the most important city in Marathwada region of the State, has been included in the Centre's Smart City project.

The move by MSEDCL has caused hardship to the local residents and leaders have expressed anger.

Today, a delegation led by AIMIM MLA Imtiaz Jaleel, along with party Corporators, met Chief Engineer of MSEDCL and demanded power supply to the street lights be restored immediately.

The party said the AMC and MSEDCL should settle the dispute over dues or else it will launch an agitation.
