Dark New Year At Shanghumukham
On Jan 02, 2015
While the world watched in awe the celebrations at Burj Khalifa, here
in Shanghumukham we couldn't even provide basic lighting for our
citizens to enjoy a quiet New Year at the beach!
The New Year eve at Shanghumukham beach turned to be a dark affair. The visitors who came here to enjoy the last day of the year were greeted by a pall of darkness that they left soon after. The beach was a lonely place unlike earlier New Year eves.
In fact people had come in early. They left since the high mast lights just refused to light up. Three of the high mast lights were not functioning for the last three months and two of them went out recently.
Shanghumukham beach is a hangout place for thousands of citizens especially those who cannot afford expensive hotels and also those who like to spend a quiet New Year eve.
Needless to say, the Corporation ought to act immediately and take
necessary steps. Hey, we are not talking about 70,000 LED lights but just
70 working ones!
