Srinagar, Feb 18: Shopkeepers of Municipality Road and Balgarden area here on Monday complained that they are reeling under darkness for the last four days.
A delegation from the area said that their business has been seriously hit by the absence of power. “We have suffered heavy financial losses due to prolonged power failure,” said Mushtaq Ahmad of Travel Master.
“The entire market is fully metered and despite that the PDD is acting as mute spectator to the problem,” another shopkeeper said.
Notably, the area has a number of private offices and tour companies who heavily depend on power for running their business. Meanwhile, Mir Mall Shopkeepers Association has appealed the Chief Engineer PDD to restore power supply to the market at the earliest.
