Shaher-e-Khaas reels under unscheduled power-cuts

SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI

Srinagar, Jan 8: The traders and inhabitants of many areas of Shaher-e-Khaas have expressed strong resentment over erratic power supply.
 A delegation of  the Jamia Masjid Traders, Nowhatta, Gojwara, and adjacent areas said for past over a month, PDD is resorting to unscheduled power cuts.
 “PDD has failed to ensure power supply as per schedule to this busy marketplace.
 We are facing many problems due to long power cuts during daytime and evenings. This has affected our business,” said president Jamia Market Traders Federation, President, Javed Ahmed Zargar.
 Meanwhile, a delegation from many areas of Shaher-e-Khas  complained of erratic power supply. 
 “We are reeling under darkness for past many weeks. Erratic power supply has affected our normal life. Students who are appearing in ongoing examinations face problems in absence of power,” said Farooq Ahmad of Nowhatta locality.
 Residents of Fair Bank Colony Rawalpora accused the PDD of resorting to unscheduled power-cuts.
