Srinagar: While expressing serious concern over the precarious power situation in Kashmir valley, CPI (M) leader and former MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Monday said governments come and go, but the electricity woes continue unabated.
In a statement issued her a spokesman said quoting Tarigami said :”We have enough water resources and despite tall claims by the politicians and the rulers of the time about solving issues, they have not been able to settle this small issue for decades.”
“During summers, due to power woes people in Jammu suffer and in winters people in Kashmir valley have to bear the brunt of power crisis.” Spokesman quoted Tarigami as saying.
Though the Governor administration claims there is improvement in governance, reality is that the power situation is same as it was during the previous years. “There is no improvement as power supply in Kashmir has become like a miscall. Isn’t it any priority for the government to provide uninterrupted power supply to people in this harsh winter?” Tarigami asked.
No power schedule is being followed on ground and even metered areas are facing long and unscheduled power cuts much to the annoyance of public.
People living in rural and far flung areas are without electricity and the recent snowfall has aggravated the crisis. People living in rural areas are compelled to arrange for alternate sources of illumination since they are facing worst power crisis. (CNS)
