Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan 21/11 (AntaranewsKalsel) - South Kalimantan DPRD member Misri Syarkawi expects the state electricity company PLN to improve services to consumers or communities in the province.
"This expectation as a follow-up of the complaints or aspirations of the people about PLN services in South Kalimantan that seem not yet maximal," he said in Banjarmasin, Tuesday.
When he recessed in Matah Village, Pelaihari Subdistrict (65 kilometers east of Banjarmasin), Tanah Laut District, a few days ago, the local community was complaining about the electricity condition of PLN which often has the blackout.
"Lately blackout is almost incalculable, it makes inconvenience," he said, citing the district community's grievances.
In addition, the voltage is less normal or often up and down, so the voltage is susceptible to damage to electronic devices, he said.
While tariffs on electricity continue to rise, is increasingly burden the society, and seem to be without socialization long before, he continued.
Therefore, the Golkar Party politician in addition to expecting improved service of PLN, also the determination of electricity tariffs should not be too burdensome to society or consumers.
