The residents of Hamadan Colony Shangergund Sopore Wednesday said that the authorities in the Power Development Department (PDD) have failed to install electric poles and wires in their area thereby making them to suffer.
A delegation comprising of locals from the area told Kashmir Vision that the temporary installed electric poles in their areas are posing risk to their lives.
The locals said that despite sanctioning of the concrete poles and wires, the authorities have failed to install it in their area.
Besides, the residents said that the transformer for 250 residential houses usually develops technical snags due to the overload.
“The transformer is not only allotted for the residents but for the mills situated in the area as well,” they said.
Meanwhile, a senior PDD official, Daljeet Singh said that they will look into the matter. “We will look into the matter and the genuine grievances of the locals will be redressed at earliest,” Singh said.
