Dar Mohalla reels under darkness
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar: The residents of Dar Mohalla, Nigeen on the City outskirts are without electricity for the past many days.
They told Greater Kashmir that the Power Development Department was not repairing their colony transformer, which developed some snag last week.
The complainants said it was difficult to manage living in the absence of electricity during these cold days of the Chillay Kalan.
“We can’t go to the Masjid for evening prayers while this problem is more so for the elderly who find it difficult to walk in the dark,” said a delegation of the locals.
“Our children are preparing for the ongoing examinations these days. They are unable to study properly in absence of electricity,” they said.
The locals also feared that the darkness could lure burglars to the colony.
They said even though the transformer has been taken for repairs, it was yet to be brought back for reinstallation.
They appealed the concerned Executive Engineer PDD to look into the matter and get it solved at an earliest.
