Srinagar, Aug 12: They had never imagined their joy to shift into their new houses in a new colony would prove too short. Problems would be so grave they have never imagined.
The denizens of Satwout, Noorbagh, a small residential colony behind Hanfiya Arabia College, (New Hospital Road) Noorbagh, said since the day they had shifted to their new houses, “we have not seen the power.”
The residents said: “We approached the concerned officials at PDD offices at Nawakadal and Sheeran Bagh requesting them to provide us with the energy, but in vain.”
The residents said there children feel scared at event and during night in absence of electricity in the colony.
Curiously, there are only a few families putting up in the colony though there are many houses there. “Many families who have completed the construction of their houses don’t come for residing because there are no basic facilities like power and drainage in the colony,” they said.
The residents said there was an HT line in the colony, but there was no LT line with the result the colony was bereft of the power.
The residents appealed the authorities to provide them with the power to make the colony livable. “The absence of the basic facilities like power, drainage, etc in the new colony, has made our life miserable,” they said.
Despite repeated attempts, the PDD officials couldn’t be contacted for comment.
