A delegation of people from Kulgam town told Precious Kashmir that curtailments have become routine during Iftar and Sehri times. They complained that load shedding is being witnessed for more than an hour during Iftar time.
“With sufficient availability of electricity this time round the PDD should not have resorted to this unscheduled cut that too at Iftar and Sehri time,” said members of the delegation, adding that one fails to understand why this load shedding is carried during the holy Ramadhan.
