Tarigami concerned over lack of basic amenities in Kashmir
Srinagar, Dec 14: Concerned over erratic power supply and scarcity of essential commodities in Kashmir, the CPI (M) State Secretary and legislator Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami has asked the government to take immediate measures for improving the power scenario and ensuring availability of daily needs.
In a statement, Tarigami said that amidst the prevailing LPG crisis, the unscheduled power cuts have pushed people to wall.
“In the freezing temperature the people have not only been deprived of ration, sugar, kerosene oil and LPG but the unscheduled power supply has added into their problems. Despite a huge hydroelectric potential, the state has been energy deficit for long and now when the cap on LPG cylinders has aggravated the situation, the authorities seem hardly bothered about the problems faced by the common people,” Tarigami said.
“Complaints of erratic power cuts galore and the government often attribute tough curtailment schedule to the reckless usage of electricity by people. But the government and semi-government departments are the biggest defaulters. There is immediate need for effective measures to bridge the gap between availability and consumption of electricity, and set up a dependable power delivery system in the State,” Tarigami said.
