Pensioners allege dismal power scenario in Kupwara
Srinagar: All Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh Pensioners’ Welfare Association has expressed concern over, what it said, the dismal power scenario in the Kupwara district.
In a statement, the Association state coordinator, Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Poshpori said the district was reeling under darkness for past several months and government was not doing anything substantial. “The politicians and bureaucrats belonging to this border district are maintaining silence over the power crises for the obvious reasons,” he said, adding these people along with their families were presently residing in government quarters either in Jammu or Srinagar.
Poshpori demanded that the government should take effective steps to improve the power scenario in the district.
Meanwhile, Poshpori has also expressed concern over, what he said, traffic mismanagement in the district.
