    LUCKNOW, June 13 -- The ongoing heatwave and poor maintenance by Lucknow Electricity Supply Administration (LESA) have left the residents of many areas in the state capital fuming and without power for hours.

    During the last 48 hours, LESA's 16 transformers got damaged, with residents suffering power cuts lasting 10 hours in a few areas of the state capital. Rajajipuram reported damage to four transformers while an equal number of transformers got damaged in Indira Nagar. Two transformers got damaged in Alambagh, two in Chinhat, and three in Bakshi Ka Talab.There were more than 40 power cuts in a day in Sarojininagar. The residents of Sarojininagar, Rahimabad, Shanti Nagar, Sarojininagar PHC, Tehsil Nagar, Tripurari Nagar, Kanchanpuri, and Sainik Society came out and protested against the power cuts.

    Meanwhile, the power supply got disrupted in Nazirabad due to a cable fault, which took six hours to repair. Prolonged power cuts were reported from areas of Para, Shubham City, lasting more than 5 hours because of a broken transmission line.
