Bandipora, Jan 1: Residents of Naidkhai (Kanipora) area Tuesday staged protest against PDD over non availability of power supply for last one month in the area.
A large number of people from Naidkhai (Kanipora) assembled near Power Receiving Station Naidkhai staged protest against PDD and blocked the Sopore Sumbal road for four and five hours.
The protesters raised slogans against the PDD department for its failure to provide electricity.
According to the protesters their village is without electricity from last one month.
“We are facing a lot of difficulties in winter due to the non availability of electricity in the area” said a female protester.
The protesters said that the electricity transformer of the area got damaged one month ago but the PDD picked up on the same one week ago. After one week we went to department but the employees of the department misbehaved with us.
Meanwhile, the official said that these allegations are baseless, “the transformer got damaged on 27 Dec.”
Meanwhile, concerned AEE reached the spot and assured the protesters that they will solve the matter as soon as possible.
