01 December 2005 [15:51] - TODAY.AZ
Residents of Husulu and Ranjbarlar villages of Agjabedi district closed Aghdam-Agjabedi road next to Husulu village for an hour at 10:30 a.m. yesterday.

Resident of Ranjbarlar village Magsud Samadov told APA that by doing so villagers wanted to express their protest since electricity supply of these villages has been cut off for 4 days already.

Therefore, about 300 residents decided to block the highway. The administration and associates of Agjabedi police came to villagers and asked them to leave the territory. The officials of the district also visited the spot and promised to solve the problem.

The electricity supply was restored after the residents opened the road, however, according to Samadov, their electricity lasted only for an hour and the lights went off again at 1 p.m.

The villagers noted that they will block the road again if the situation continues to stay as it is.
