Kashmir facing prolonged power outages: NC
Says incumbent administration has failed to provide round the clock electricity to consumers
NC rued pesky power supply in Kashmir
Srinagar, Nov 23 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC) on Tuesday rued pesky power supply in Kashmir and alleged the acute power supply is tormenting people in freezing temperature.
NC Party Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar expressed concern over the electricity crisis in Kashmir, said “In spite of the government promising to provide round the clock and as per schedule electricity, consumers across Kashmir continue to face unprecedented power outages”.
He said, with a massive dip in temperature and the entire valley reeling under sub-zero temperatures, people are hardly getting any relief from the electricity department.
He said, the department isn’t following a particular load shedding schedule whereas the government continues to remain unmoved.
“Providing relief to people, unfortunately, isn’t on the to-do-list of the incumbent administration. It seems people’s suffering will continue this winter too,” he said.
He added that the situation has gone from bad to worse during the past few weeks. Power cuts are more frequent and extended during the evening hours, he added.
