SRINAGAR: While expressing concern over the precarious power situation in Kangan constituency, senior National Conference leader and former MLA Kangan, Mian Altaf Ahmed has said that it seems that the administration has virtually decided to keep the people into perpetual darkness.
Mian Altaf in a statement said that the there is non-availability of the power supply in the entire Ganderbal district over the last three months. “The people in most of the areas of Kangan constituency face erratic and unscheduled power supplies as PDD has failed to repair the damaged transformers and restore power supply in these areas,” he said.
“People are facing immense hardships due to unscheduled and non availability of power supply and are forced to come on roads to protest,” Mian Altaf said.
He said that PDD has failed to repair and reinstall transformers in several areas of Kangan due to which the people are facing immense hardships that too at a time when the power supplies are needed more to cope-up with the chilly winter.
“Many transformers in several areas of Kangan constituency are damaged and lying in workshops for a long time now, adding that the PDD authorities should seem least concerned,” he added.
Mian Altaf urged the district administration and PDD authorities to ensure uninterrupted power supply to its consumers.
