Erratic power supply irks Old Town Islamabad residents
Srinagar, Dec 25: The residents of old town Islamabad (Anantnag) have threatened to stage protests against Power Development Department for erratic power supply.
The residents of the areas including Mehman Mohalla, DangerPora, Reshi Bazar, Janglaat Mandi, Kralyar, Mattan Chowk and Kadipora have urged chief minister to intervene.
“We urge chief minister to intervene since he is the concerned minister before snowfall hits these areas as we are witnessing a drastic reduction in the electricity supply,” said Muhammad Amin, a resident of old town. “The voltage has also decreased in our areas,” he said. The residents warned that they won’t pay the bills, if the unscheduled power cuts continues.
“Despite paying bills regularly we are rendered without power. If the poor supply continues, we would come on streets and burn the electricity bills,” said Mukhtar Ahmad, a resident of Mehman Mohalla.
