Damaged power transformer not being lifted in Srinagar locality, Locals protest
The residents of Bagh-e-Lala Pandit locality in the Noor Bagh area of Srinagar Friday staged a protest against the Power Development Department. The protesters said that their transformer has been damaged for four days and yet it has not been lifted from the area. They expressed resentment and said that the locality needs an upgraded transformer.
“We draw electricity from a transformer which is already overloaded and due to that we are facing extreme power cuts. We often face issues and now this transformer has got damaged and is not being lifted by PDD for the repair,” the protesters told the news agency Kashmir News Trust.
“We have been appealing to the concerned authorities to install a transformer of 350 KWs in our area so that we may not suffer anymore. If they will install a transformer in our locality, that will ease the load, but no action has been taken yet” the locals said.
The protesters said that they fail to understand why the department is delaying the installation of a new transformer which can ease their suffering. [KNT]
