Chenab Valley, Sep 26: Strange may sound but it is true and most surprising, that Power Development Department in chenab valley had setup it’s unique example in Bunjwah region of Kishtwar district by installing of links from transformer using damaged wires and wooden poles.
Tall claims made by State Government and Power Development Department Minister of Jammu and Kashmir state Dr Nirmal Singh , who happens to be Dy Chief Minister claiming in providing better electricity facilities at door step vows only in papers and offices , as reality differs to its fiction.
It is a matter of concern that Power Development Department in bunjwah had became only a name as no improvement came to be seen on ground . As it was not enough that frequent electricity cuts and flat rates was routine of PDD , Despite collecting huge amount as monthly fare from consumers PDD failed in installation of iron poles for linking of transformer links in village Chinara of Binoon panchayat .
Eyewitness and pics proves that How employees of PDD are behaving with inhibitants of Bunjwah . Not only in village Chinara/ Jerwar of Binoon panchayat , various transformers are installed on wooden poles and wires are attached with green trees for supplying of electricity .
Despite many repeated requests made before concerned higher authorities regarding the replacing of wires from wooden poles and green trees , till day no one pays heed toward Bunjwah as nothing seems to be on ground.
In village Chinara of Binoon panchayat transformer was installed a decade ago using wooden pole of length 5 meters in connecting links and providing electricity to consumers as its installation was made on Binoon Zerwar footway at Chinara till day it remains in same position as public and school going children’s always remains in danger meeting the same spot on their way .
It imagine the fact that “Only name of PDD in exist in Bunjwah” that shows the real face and mismanagement of PDD in Bunjwah .
Peoples are regularly paying their monthly electricity bills in bank on account of PDD without consuming electricity or electricity is just like a spark as Chenab Valley is hub of many hydro electric power projects and having ability to light whole state but not lighting it home regions .
It is important to mention that the employees of Power Development Department posted in Bunjwah failed to replace the damaged wooden poles from last six months as the iron poles are lying on ground in panchyat Binoon of Tehsil Bunjwah.
