Pesky power cuts trigger protest
Ganderbal, Dec 31: Outraged over pesky power cuts, hundreds of residents of Duderhama, Fatehpora, Saloora, Malpora, Arampora, Warpora and adjoining villages of this district blocked Ganderbal-Srinagar road near Mini secretariat on Monday.
Protesters comprising mostly women raised anti-PDD and anti-government slogans against the unscheduled power cuts. “The main Ganderbal town is facing unscheduled power cuts more often than the far flung areas,” protesters alleged.
“We get power supply for only two hours at a stretch and after every hour or half an hour we experience power cuts for hours together,” they added.
Later top police officials reached the spot and pacified the protesters.
Repeated attempts to contact the PDD officials proved futile.
