Srinagar: Ennco Lane residents of Karan Nagar locality here have expressed resentment against the Kashmir Power Development Corporation Limited for frequent power line breakage, which has left the neighbourhood in darkness.
The electricity lines, according to the locals, are old as a result these break down on a daily basis, causing power outages and endangering the lives of inhabitants. Commercial establishments in the area also face business losses, which irritates the local business community.
“Every day a power line fails in our area, and although we have repeatedly asked the power department authorities to replace the damaged wires, our requests have been ignored,” said a local resident.
Residents have urged Divisional Commissioner Kashmir and Chief Engineer KPDCL, Javid Ahmad Dar, to give instructions to concerned field staff so that they can address their complaints.
