Srinagar,Jan 6: The residents of Gole Market, Karan Nagar locality here are without electricity for the past one month.
A delegation from the area said that the Power Development Department (PDD) has failed to repair the colony transformer which developed some snag over a month ago.
They said even though the transformer was taken for repairs last month, but it is yet to be repaired.
“PDD is resorting to inordinate delay in repairing the transformer. Our children are preparing for the ongoing examinations these days. They are unable to study properly in absence of electricity,” they said.
Meanwhile, the residents of Bagh-e-Ali Mardan Khan and its adjoining areas in Shaher-e-Khaas are reeling under darkness from last 10 days due to technical snag in a transformer there.
A delegation from the area said the transformer developed technical last month. “Despite passing of 10 days, the transformer has not been repaired. In absence of power we are facing immense hardships. We had many times approached the PDD to place another transformer in the area, however our requests met with deaf ears,” they said.
The inhabitants of these areas appealed the Chief Engineer Power Development Department (PDD) to look into the matter and restore power at the earliest.
