Poor power plays spoilsport at Jamia

Traders up in arms

Srinagar, Oct 25: The traders of Jamia Market surrounding the historic central Masjid at Nowhatta are up in arms against the Power Development Department accusing the PDD of plunging the area into darkness particularly during evenings when the marketplace was expected to do brisk business ahead of the Eid-ul-Azha.
 The Jamia Market Traders Federation President Javed Ahmed Zargar said the market suffered huge business losses as the shoppers had to face inconvenience and many returned empty handed as the area was reeling under darkness in the evenings when rush increases manifold.
 “It seems that this government takes us as animals that we are forced into darkness at a time when our biggest festival is approaching fast,” Zargar said adding the poor power supply could trigger resentment from locals and traders alike.
 When contacted the Chief Engineer PDD Muhammad Muzaffar Mattoo said the area was getting proper supply and that there might have remained some issue with load shedding. He however got the supply resumed at around 7:00 PM.
