Pesky power cuts haunt Hajin
Hajin (Sonawari), Dec 23: Residents of this north Kashmir town are facing pesky power cuts in harsh winter season.
Locals said during 24 hours, the electricity supply remains affected for 12 to 13 hours. “We even contacted PDD officials but they didn’t pay heed towards us. The power failure in the town has revealed that government is continuously neglecting us,” locals said.
They said despite Hajin being a part of Speaker Muhammad Akbar Lone’s constituency, they are being deprived of basic necessity—power supply.
“The examinations of our children are underway and the pesky power cuts are affecting their studies,” they said.
“After every ten minutes electricity is cut off,” they said. “Officials don’t listen to us.
The power cuts are also affecting the water supply to the households. “Women in the town have to fetch water from Jhelum even in harsh winter season due to electricity cuts. The water pumps here also turn defunct due to the electricity cuts,” said a local Abdul Ahad.
A group of traders said power failure was severely affecting their business.
