Looks like the regular power cuts have gotten people hot under the collar… literally! and many are complaining to local representatives of the associations they belong to. You could also send an email to the Indian Embassy in Kuwait about the situation so that they can coordinate with the ministry to resolve this situation.
Please send your emails to ‘email@example.com‘
update: the guys at Q8NRI.com are doing a great job to bring this problem to the notice of the authorities. You can keep up with the updates [here]
Update 2: Thank you KK
Dear Member of the Indian Community,
As follow up to the message that I had addressed to him yesterday, I met last night with the Minister of Electricity and Water, H.E. Dr. Bader Al-Shuraiaan.
He clarified that the transformer serving Abbassiya had been seriously overheating and if not regularly shut off to allow it to cool down then it would almost certainly breakdown entirely.
In response to my request to urgently implement a permanent solution to address the problem being faced by Abbassiya residents, H.E. Dr. Al-Shuraiaan assured me that a new transformer to provide electricity to Abbassiya will be installed tomorrow (Tuesday, June 22) at Omariya Power Station.
Ambassador of India,
