Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Feb 7: Like 2014 floods in Kashmir, this time government again failed to meet the challenges that has been caused due to fresh snowfall, while as the MeT had already made prediction of moderate to heavy snowfall in Kashmir and other parts of the state.
Sources said that, the civil administration was well aware about the snowfall as their concerned Meteorological department has made prediction about this, but they have failed to come to the expectations of people all over the Kashmir valley.
The tall claims of the government about restoration of electricity, sufficient stock of essential commodities, men and machineries were kept ready to meet any eventualities are nothing more than a white lie, sources told early times.
Sources said that it was continuously snowing at most of the places in Kashmir valley, while as somewhere the plains received 6-9 inches of snow, and in the northern districts it was almost 12 to 14 inches of snow, while as the higher reaches received 2 to 2.6 inches of snow till Thursday evening.
Mohammad Altaf from Narbal said that, it was police personnel that were helping the people and stranded vehicles on the roads, while as the people from civil administration were invisible for a whole day.
There is no electricity from yesterday evening, and people are being forced to face hardships in absence of basic facilities, and government has failed at all fronts, adding in Sep 2014 there was a same kind of situation when government was failed to rescue the people, despite it was already known that floods will hit JK, said Altaf.
However sources said that. an under construction transmission tower of BBTL collapsed in north Kashmir's Bandipora village on Thursday morning due to heavy snowfall.
An under construction transmission tower of BBTL collapsed at Ajas village this morning due to snowfall, however, there was no report of any injury was in the incident, said sources.
Manzoor Ahmad Bukhari, a noted social activists and writer from Baramulla said that, the Chief Engineer Kashmir is telling a white lie, about the restoration of 80% of electricity across the Kashmir valley.
In Baramulla town alone, no electricity has been restored yet, we don't have electricity from yesterday evening and the governor should enquire the matter, why false promises are being made with the people, when the ground situation speaks something different, Bukhari lamented.
Pertinently there are reports that the Chief Engineer PDD, has said that against 1200 Mega Watts, the department is currently supplying 800 MWs.
"Barring three district areas including Budgam, Shopian and Kulgam, at least 80 percent of the electricity has been restored across Kashmir, sources while quoting CE, PDD as having said.
However sources further said that, the Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir Baseer Khan has issued an order which reads that, all the Petrol Pump owners have been strictly directed not to issue more than 3 Liters Petrol and 10 Liters Diesel to any vehicle.
The prices of edible items have gone high due to inclement weather and authorities have again failed to keep the sufficient stock of daily items in advance, and with the result people are suffering at large, sources added.
