Match ‘clean bolds’ power turns
GK CITY CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Mar 30: Upholding the commitment of providing power supply during the India-Pakistan match, the Power Development Department Wednesday tried to avoid routine curtailments in many City areas.
As per the officials at fully metered Barzulla Baghat and Raj Bagh Sub Divisions, the grids provided electricity to all areas which were otherwise scheduled to face cuts.
“Though there was an overload of consumption, we managed to keep the supplies on,” said a senior PDD official.
Many a power consumer said they called the concerned grid stations to get the energy to watch the live telecast of the high voltage event.
A senior police official said the power supplies were vital for maintenance of law and order as “otherwise there was every possibility of people taking to streets.”
