Metered Shalapora appeals for scheduled cuts!
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 28: In an unusual demand, the residents of Shala Pora, Alucha Bagh have sought Chief Minister’s intervention to ensure that the PDD enforces scheduled cuts in the area, which is completely metered.
The residents said they were fed-up of the frequent unscheduled cuts which amount to some six hours a day curtailment.
“When we protested for scheduled cuts the authorities resorted to unscheduled cuts. The light goes off at crucial moments including marriage ceremony or the last rites of dead. See our plight that the authorities forced us back to demand the scheduled cuts even as we pay for 24-hr supply,” said Gurupreet Singh a housewife.
Pertinently the government has assured uninterrupted power supply to the metered areas. But this summer, it seems to be a different scene as many of the metered areas face “pesky power cuts”.
