Hajin: Residents of Hajin town of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Monday blocked the Hajin-Srinagar road to protest against power crisis in the area.
The protesters, mostly women, held a protest at Higher Secondary ground Hajin located near police station and disrupted traffic movement on the road for hours together.
They were shouting slogans against PDD and demanding electricity as per schedule in their area. The protestors said that the PDD authorities have resorted to long unscheduled power cuts in the area.
They threatened to prolong the agitation if the electricity was not restored.
A police party led by SHO Hajin Muneeb ul Islam reached the spot and pacified the protesters by assuring them that their grievance would be taken up with the concerned officials.
