People protest against removal of transformer

Early Times Report

Anantnag, Jan 11: Inhabitants of Rain village of South Kashmir's Verinag area Wednesday held protests against the removal of 25 KV transformer which was installed in the village last evening.
They alleged that the transformer was removed by the department on the direction of PDD MoS Syed Farooq Indrabi.
The protesters blocked Kaparan-Verinag road and held protests against Indrabi. "We were pursuing our case for the past several years for the installation of transformer in our village as the existing one was overloaded because of which we were facing unscheduled and frequent power cuts," a local said.
"Following three years of our struggle, PDD on Tuesday installed a transformer in the village but on Wednesday morning they found it missing," he added.
Locals alleged that when they approached PDD authorities, they told them that the transformer had been removed at the minister's behest. "We came to know that some PDP workers had rung up the minister and told him that the area belongs to NC and Congress as in the last elections, the two parties had bagged more votes than PDP," they alleged.
They warned to intensify their struggle in case PDD failed to re-install the transformer within next 24 hours.
PDD Executive Engineer, Anantnag, Mushtaq Ahmad Shah told media that his staff had mistakenly installed the transformer in the village. "Actually the transformer had come to our workshop for repairs and was meant for some other area. The case of Rain village is under progress and we have received instructions from the minister to speed it up," he said.
Meanwhile, Bijbehara residents also held protest against PDD and blocked Srinagar-Jammu National Highway for hours together. Later, police and PDD officials visited the spot and pacified the protesters while promising to repair the damaged transformer within a week.
