Budgam residents seek power restoration
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Budgam, Jan 10: The residents of Wathoora Sheikhpora in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district are up in arms against the Power Development Department for its failure to repair the transformer and restore power supply to the area.
The inhabitants staged protests at main road Sheikhpora Chadoora and shouted slogans against the PDD.
Panch of the area, Muhammad Jamal told Greater Kashmir that PDD was not repairing their transformer, which developed some technical snag on December 22.
"The authorities have failed to do anything substantial in this regard despite repeated pleas made by the inhabitants of the area. We are facing huge inconvenience during these chilling days and are not able to move out of homes to offer evening prayers," he said.
“We are facing power crisis at a time when our children are preparing for examinations,” the locals said.
The locals appealed to the Chief Engineer Power Development Department to look into the matter.
