Tarigami concerned over precarious power situation in Kashmir
“It is unfortunate same situation is being repeated every winter”
SRINAGAR, November 17: While expressing serious concern over the precarious power situation in Kashmir valley, CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Saturday said it is unfortunate that the same situation is being repeated during every winter.
Though the government claims there is improvement in governance, reality is that the power situation is same as it was during the previous years. There is no improvement. Isn’t it any priority for the government to provide uninterrupted power supply to people in this harsh winter? Soon after the Durbar move offices moved to Jammu, the people of the Valley have been left devoid of power supply, Tarigami said in a statement issued here today.
He said that no power schedule is being followed on ground and even metered areas are facing long and unscheduled power cuts much to the annoyance of public.
“While the people in cities and towns had to face low voltage and erratic power supply, people living in rural and far-flung areas were left without electricity,” he said.
He said that the Power Development Department (PDD) has failed to create a buffer stock of electricity transformers at district and divisional levels to address the situation surfaced due to damaged transformers.
