Protesters block water supply to powerhouse

Kangan: Residents of Fraw Kangan in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district blocked water supply to a nearby power project on Tuesday afternoon to press for their demands.
Demanding power supply from the powerhouse, the protesting residents diverted water from the canal feeding Upper Sindh Hydroelectric Power Project Ist to an escape channel. They also staged protests against PDD and PDC.
“We have given sacrifices for the construction of the power house but our pleas for power supply to our area are being ignored time and again. We demand special power supply to our locality,” the protesters said.
They said the water supply to the power house would not be restored until their demands were met.
Last week the residents of Thune in the same area staged similar type of protests to press for their demand of special power supply to their area.
