With Intermediate and Class 10 board examinations on in full swing, the daily three-hour power cut has made it extremely difficult for students to cope up with their studies. In addition to the three-hour cuts, there are many occasions when people have to face unscheduled power cuts, making life more difficult for students. I request the APCPDCL authorities to look into the matter, resolve glitches in transmission lines and even consider reducing the power cut to at least one-hour instead of three.
RTC bus services needed
RTC authorities will do well to run more buses via JP Shelters at Macha Bolarum. For more than a decade, only a single city bus (number 22M) has been plying between Suryanagar and Secunderabad. Later, the bus route was also changed to Afzalgunj after completion of its first 7 a.m. trip to Secunderabad. Over the years, the number of commuters have increased, but the buses between Suchitra junction and Secunderabad have not increased exponentially. Buses between Suchitra and Secunderabad station through I.G. Statue, e-seva, Alwal Golnaka centre, like 25S and 25I, should also cover areas like Select Talkies, Janapriya Shelters, Rythu Bazar and Alwal Golnaka Centre.
Regulate milk prices
There is an urgent need for the government to intervene and start regulating the prices of milk. In the last three years these private milk companies have hiked milk packet prices by more than Rs.10, which is very high by any inflationary standards. Milk is an essential food item and there is a need to have control over its pricing.
