Baramulla: The unscheduled power cuts have made the lives of the people miserable across the district.
People from different areas of the district said that the unscheduled power cuts made students suffer as class 10 and 12 examinations are going on and lack of power supply to homes forces students to use candles and lanterns to prepare for examinations.
“There is no schedule for power cuts. We approached the concerned department many times, but to no avail,” said Muzaffar Ahmad, a resident of Watergam Rafiabad.
“We do not receive proper power supply as per schedule and frequent power cuts have become a daily affair. Remember that there are three big power projects working in our area and people are living under transmission lines and towers, but are without power,” Showqat Ahmad, a resident of Uri said.
Shabir Ahmad, a resident of Andergam Pattan, said that children were unable to study properly in absence of electricity. “Students also need to use internet, but we can’t charge our computer batteries,” he said.
