Nearly 30 Households in Syed Hamid Pora Locality Srinagar Without Power Supply

Srinagar, Jan 26 (GNS): Locals of Gulbadaab Galli, opposite graveyard, in Syed Hamid Pora, Nawab Bazar in central Kashmir’s Srinagar district have expressed their anguish over non-availability of electricity amid ongoing harsh winters.

A local delegation told GNS that nearly thirty households have been left without electricity since Thursday afternoon. “We faced the outage this afternoon following which we reached out to the authorities concerned to know the issue”, they said, adding the authorities assured that they were on job to restore the supply at an earliest”.

“At around evening, when we called them again, they (department) told us that it may take a while to rectify the issue”, they said. “However even after several hours since then also, we are yet to see restoration of the supply”, they claimed.

“First the department kept us waiting for almost a day, promising the supply will be restored and now when we called them again they are saying it is too late for them to do anything now”, they said adding they are more concerned about themselves and not about the plight of common masses amid the prevalent harsh weather.

When contacted, AEE concerned Imtiyaz Ahmad told GNS that the department had put its men on job to rectify the issue. “We are mindful of the sufferings of people, however due to darkness and as a sort of precautionary measure, the men on job were taken off the duty to avoid any exigency in late hours”, he said adding the supply will be restored by or before 10 tomorrow (Friday).
