GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 1: The inhabitants of Safa Kadal and adjoining Eidgah have accused the Power Development Department of resorting to unscheduled power cuts in the area.
A delegation comprising of locals from Norpora, Rathpora, Waniyar, Alnoor Colony, Noor Bagh and Baghwan Pora told Greater Kashmir that the officials were not even following the curtailment schedule issued by the PDD.
“The officials concerned are resorting to unscheduled power cuts due to which the people are facing immense hardships during these chilling weather conditions,” the delegation said.
They said that despite numerous reminders and representations to the concerned officials, their grievance had not been redressed so far. “We only demand that the electricity should be provided according to the curtailment schedule,” the residents added.
Showkat Ahmed a resident of Eidgah said they don’t even get that much of power in a day that a mobile phone could be recharged.
“Poor power supply has even left us void of mobile communication even though it forms a vital part of ones life these days,” they said.
They sought the intervention of the Chief Engineer PPD in this regard.
