Early Times Report

KUPWARA, May 11: During holy month of Ramdhan, pesky power cuts are giving people tough moments in Handwara and adjoining areas forcing the people to lock down the power receiving station in Audoora Qalambad as a mark of protest.
Earlier the government assured continued power supply but the tall claims exploded in the very start of the holy month, local resident of Langate told ET.
Bashir Ahmad of Langate said that the area is lacking basic facilities, but the concerned authorities are least bothered about it and we are suffering like anything.
However, sources said that, the residents of several Langate areas on Saturday locked down the power receiving station in Audoora Qalambad to mark a protest against the pesky power cuts. The villagers of Qalamabad, Audoora, Warpora, Drungsoo, Shahnagri, Kutlari, Khudi, Chek Yahama, Nowgam, Reshwari, and others also staged a protest against Power Development Department (PDD).
They also chanted slogans against the department, saying that it has failed to provide adequate electricity to them from last two months.
Local residents of Qalamabad said that they are receiving electricity without any proper schedule, therefore leaving the local populace here to suffer. "We demand that adequate electricity be provided to the villagers so that we could heave a sigh of relief.
If the situation continues to worsen then the department should understand that the villagers will not pay the electricity fee this month because we have not seen electricity so for.
The residents also locked the receiving station as a mark of protest, demanding authorities to provide adequate electricity to them.
