Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 13: It seems that the poor and the marginalized section in the society have no say, as despite repeated appeals to power development department (PDP) authorities and the sub divisional magistrate (SDM), RS Pura, Devi Rani, a widow from Suchetgarh, is living under life threat.
Electric line goes over her house, that fell more than six times and the family had a narrow escape, but the concerned could not arrange a poll to overcome the 'threat' family is going through.
"Since the day, department laid electric wires over our house, we have been requesting for installation of a poll, but after lapse of years, the department could not provide it ", said Devi Rani, resident of village Rakh Yard, in Suchetgarh, the family head, surviving with extreme poverty.
Narrating her ordeal, Devi Rani said that she went to SDM R S Pura, with a hope that he would do justice with them, but he further wrote Assistant Engineer PDD. "Then I went, to AE, who further asked me to go to concerned Junior Engineer, PDD, when I approached the JE, he said that he has not received any directions from higher ups", she said.
She further said that she time and again has urged the concerned lineman, but it seems that he was also waiting for a mishap. "I can't pay Chai-pani to Babus, that's why they have ignored me, even the passerby suggests that without poll Electric wires are hovering like "Yamraj" over my family, but I'm helpless to come out this 'threat'", she said.
She said that seeking no response from administration and the PDD department, she fixed a wooden stick as poll to keep electric wire away, but with wind, the wires falls in their small lawn, and certainly a day it will be proven as Jamraj for my family.
The 60 years old widow, appealed Governor, Satya Pal Malik to rescue her family from the uncertain death hovering over her family.
