Kokernag, Dec 3: People of Dessu junction held protest demonstration and raised slogans against PDD administration.
It may be recalled that the residents of Dessu Junction are protesting for the want of upgraded transformer from last many months. A group of residents said that they are suffering in this winter a lot due to burning of transformer and this condition prevails only because the transformer is burdened with excessive load.
The protestors alleged that a 100 KV transformer was installed in their village but due to large population, an upgraded transformer is required to meet their power needs.
“Various times, the installed transformer got damaged due to overload”, they said and demanded installation of 250 KV transformer in their village.
“We almost repair the transformer two to three times in every month, now we are tired of it. Many times the transformer gets damaged which affects electricity. Our students suffer a lot due to this,” said Abdul Hameed Sheikh a resident.
When contacted AEE Fayaz Ahmad assured that the genuine demand of habitants will be solved in few days.
The residents have urged for immediate restoring of upgraded transformer or they will start protesting on roads.
