People in different parts of Assam are complaining of massive load shedding. 

People took to social media to register their complaint against load shedding.

People complained that electricity in several areas is being provided for only 3 to 4 hours. In many areas electricity is being provided for only 1 hour. 

“Lack of power supply from last 3 days in my area (Vill-Tikarpara, Nilambazar, dist-Karimganj.) My online final exams are going on, absence of electricity I can’t charge my laptop and phone. Even I couldn’t attend my exam. Kindly look into the matter,” a Twitter user urged the APDCL (Assam Power Distribution Corporation Limited).
