Several areas of central Kashmir's Chadoora and Chrar-e-Sharief are without power supply from the past two days.

The residents of these areas said that a Chinar tree branch that fell on 33KV line at Andrabi Mohallah Kralpora has disconnected the power supply to these areas. 

They said that the area consists of more than 50 villages and the disconnected lines feed at least four receiving stations in the area. 

People alleged that PDD is not making any serious efforts to restore power supply in these areas.  

"We are facing lot of inconveniences and water supply in our area has also got affected owing to the power shortage,"  Muhammad Ayoub, a resident said.

The Executive Engineer PDD Budgam, Muzafar Mukhtiyar, said that his men are at the work and the power supply would be restored soon.
