Srinagar, Jan 29: The people of Moorie Kotiyan, a village located 15 kilometers away from Kalaroos, in north Kashmir’s frontier Kupwara district are living without electricity.
The people told GNS that their village is still deprived of the electricity in this modern age. Besides, the road leading to the village from Kalaroos is in shambles and has never been macadamized by any political regime.
The residents said that in this modern age, the village has been provided only one latest technology i.e. an Airtel tower.
“Only one Airtel tower has been set up some distance away to the village that too some months back,” they said, adding that the tower also developed some snag two months ago.
“We are very poor and have no influence to reach out to the political leaders or MLAs. This is one of the reasons that the village has been deprived since decades by all the regimes,” they said.
The locals said the political leaders during election campaigns seek votes and later turn deaf ears to their problems.
“We have come to know that the present Governor Satya Pal Malik has done many pro-people initiatives. We appeal him to help us get basic facilities of life,” the residents said.
