Heatwave paralyses routine life: Severe heat persisting in the city and other parts of the district couple with loadshedding has brought life almost to a standstill.

While on one hand intense heat has forced people to mostly remain indoors, on the other hand unannounced loadshedding has made their lives more miserable.

The situation has come to such a pass that even operations have been put off since hospitals are mostly without electricity.
