Stating that Kashmir was going through unprecedented power outages in both rural as well as its urban areas, National Conference Wednesday expressed concern over the callous approach of state government in addressing the problem.
In a statement, NC provincial spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said, "It seems the government which had earlier issued a standard power cut schedule has forgotten to implement it. Instead they have resorted to a massive unscheduled power cuts across the valley. The situation is equally worse in both metered and non-metered areas of rural as well as urban Kashmir."
While calling for immediate action from the authorities concerned Imran said, "The crisis has compounded further owing to prevalent sub zero temperature in the valley where people particularly the young and the old are being forced to shiver in cold. Students who have to appear for various competitive exams are also feeling dejected."
