The city of Vishakapatnam aka Vizag is considered the most potential among the many cities of India. If planned properly, it has the ability to become another Mumbai. At least this was the vision of its CM Chandrababu Naidu till sometime back. But now, one incident has changed the whole scenario.
Some of the experts are saying the power scenario in Vizag currently is same as it was in 1960. Apparently, the entire power infrastructure which was built over 50 years is wiped out with the recent cyclone Hudhud. Many Vizagiites have gone back literally to the age of radios and lack of mobile phones.
There is a need to build every distribution line, rebuild 50% of the substation infrastructure. Restore all high voltage lines and substations. The common comment coming from many is, if CBN succeeds in bring back power before Diwali, the people of Vizag can erect a 100 feet statue in his honour. But that would take a superhuman performance from all the engineers. However, the electrical engineers are opining a timeframe of 8 to 10 days is considered since CBN is there otherwise it would have taken months. We have to see what miracle happens.
