Electric wires pass through trees, damaged poles
Pose Risk To People, PDD mute
Tral: Power Development Department (PDD) has put lives of people of Mandoora area of Tral here at risk by installing electric wires on trees and damaged poles.
The villagers said the electric wires pass through trees and damaged poles at many places. “These lines are very low lying and pose threat to people” they said.
They said they had many times apprised the concerned PDD officers about the matter. “Ironically they have acted as mute spectators. In case of any mishap due to these electric wires, the PDD would be responsible for its consequences,” the aggrieved inhabitants said.
“PDD has completely ignored our area. We are facing continuous and unscheduled power cuts,” they said.
When contacted the Assistant Executive Engineer PDD Tral Bupinder Singh assured to look into the matter. “We will take appropriate measures to redress genuine problems of the people,” he said.
