Defunct street lights irk Bemina residents

Residents from different localities of Bemina here on Monday complained about defunct street lights in their areas.

They accused the authorities of failing to repair the lightning system despite repeated pleas.

A group of locals from different areas of Bemina said they are forced to walk out of their homes in pitch dark for dawn and night prayers owing to defunct street lights.

“Even in this holy month of Ramadhan, the authorities have failed to repair the street lights,” said a resident from Nund Reshi Colony-A. 

He said they have been requesting authorities for long time to repair or replace the street lighting but nothing has been done.
