Unscheduled electric cuts hits chenab valley during holy month of Ramdhan

Stepmother behaviour of Administration playing with emotions of particularly community


SHAFQAT SHAHEEN SHEIKH


  Chenab Valley, May 10: The trio districts of Chenab Valley in Jammu and Kashmir is known as hub of electricity generation and is generating electricity for across the state and country. This beautiful valley is only used as shield by representatives despite of its major development in the region had became a distant dream.
*In Focus* Near about dozens of hydroelectricity power projects are constructed and still some are under construction that are lighting the whole state. Throughout the year unscheduled power cuts hits the life of a common man badly as no schedule is maintained by Power Development Department. “In holy month of Ramdhan, state government failed in providing hassle free supply of essential commodities and maintaining rate lists of vegetables, fruits and meats, that are sold on sky touching prices by shopkeepers. “It is a wonderful truth that Chenab Valley is having ability to light whole state but unfortunately is not lighting its home regions of trio districts beside administration is playing with emotions of particularly community during holy month of Ramadan.”
A renowned Social Activist said that it had now became habit of such administration and government who are playing with emotions of particularly community during holy month and even unscheduled cuts during “Sheri and Iftari” hours are now common in these days. Alleging that we are charging fare of electricity more than 360/month as we have to use torch to see the electric blub as electricity is just like a spark and during  this holy month this spark is also lost during Sheri and Iftari hours .
From last few years , on occasion of holy festivals of Muslim community , PDD is playing hide and seek game and playing with emotions of particularly community that shows the stepmother behaviour of Administration across the Chenab Valley.
It is pertinent to mention that concerned department had installed electric wire more than 25 years ago using wooden poles and till day the wooden poles and wires are not changed as wires are still hanging with green trees in remote regions of Kishtwar and Doda .
It is matter of concern to wake up and fight against the such administration who are spreading hate mongering among society by their irresponsible behaviour.
