Srinagar, .Jan 05: Senior Congress Leader, State Pradesh Congress Committee General and MLA Bandipora Usman Majid slams Mehbooba Mufti led Govt over power cuts in Valley
Majid flayed the Mehbooba Led state Government over power shortage in the Valley. “Despite severe cold, the Kashmir valley is going through the worst power crisis in recent years. Even in metered areas, power supply remains cut for at least six hours in a day.
The condition in non-metered areas is even worse. I want to ask the government what is the reason for this huge curtailment,” Majid said in a statement. “Winter is not new in Kashmir and neither there is a decrease in power generation. But why is the curtailment schedule so long this year? It seems that under the garb of unrest, the PDP-led government is punishing people of Kashmir for no fault of theirs,” he added.
“The State Government has been exposed and its failure to keep the promises vis-à-vis power supply is evident,” Majid said.
