Kashmir faces power outages before onset of winter, bemoans Sheikh Jamsheed

Sheikh Jamsheed strongly raised his voice over the frequent and unscheduled power cuts in the Kashmir valley and demanded for its speedy resolution.


Srinagar: Prominent social activist and general secretary of NGO Awami Welfare Forum (Kashmir), Sheikh Jamsheed on Wednesday strongly raised his voice against the frequent and unscheduled power cuts in Kashmir and demanded for its speedy resolution as soon as possible. “Kashmir is going through one of its worst power crises as unscheduled and prolonged power cuts in supply are creating problems for the general public”, remarked Sheikh Jamsheed.

Sheikh overwhelmingly added that “It’s pertinent to mention that the winter season is fast approaching and during winter electricity becomes a need of the hour, but due to the unscheduled and prolonged power cuts, the general public are suffering a lot. He added further, “Power outages across Kashmir before the winters seems like it could make winter unbearable for people, particularly children and elderly, when the night temperature would be dipping to below freezing point.

Sheikh Jamsheed further added “Residents in Kashmir are facing sporadic power outages as there are unscheduled power cuts by the Power Development Department (PDD) as winter is yet to set in. Pertinently, power outages have become a source of concern for students whose exams are approaching and their studies are being hampered by frequent power outages.

“The power outages are a cause of concern because they are interfering with the studies of students. Preparing without electricity is extremely difficult. Sheikh said “The general public are clearing their monthly electricity outstanding, they aren’t utilising electricity at free of cost, they are paying for it, their concerns must be taken under consideration as soon as possible so that the general public won’t suffer anymore Sheikh added.
