Sopore: The residents of Sangrama Block in this north Kashmir town on Saturday took to streets and blocked Sopore-Srinagar highway against the power development department (PDD).
The residents said that some days back the transformer of their area got damaged. “We approached to PDD office several times but all in vain. Since then we are reeling under darkness,” said Younis Ahmad, a local resident.
Chanting anti-PDD slogans, the protesters were demanding restoration of power supply at the earliest.
“We have been demanding repairing of damaged transformer of our locality but nobody paid heed to our continuous requests and forced us to come to the streets,” they said.
