Unscheduled power cuts irk Ganderbal residents
Ganderbal, Feb 24: The residents of Saloora, Bamloora, Duderhama, Gangerhama, Gadoora, Fatehpora and the adjoining areas of the district are up in arms against the Power Development Department for frequent and unscheduled power cuts.
“We receive power supply for five hours in a day and face tremendous problems during the evenings and nights due to unscheduled power cuts,” the aggrieved residents said.
The residents of Lar, Repora, Theru, Baroosa and adjoining area have similar complaints.
“The government’s claim of operating gas turbine to provide electricity as per schedule is a hoax. It is the responsibility of the PDD to provide us round the clock power supply as we regularly pay our electricity bills,” they added.
Superintendent Engineer, PDD Ganderbal, Muzaffar Mattoo feigned ignorance about the cause of unscheduled and frequent power cuts. “Only one hour curtailment is scheduled between 6 pm to 10 pm. I will look into the matter to ensure power supply as per schedule,” he said.
