Baramulla : Months of protest by the residents of Rehmatabad colony of Kreeri area in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district continues against the electricity department but to no avail as the defunct transformer continues to remain defunct.
Exactly A month back we approached the concern authority to repair the damaged transformer lying in our locality since then we residents of Rehmatabad colony of Kreeri are reeling under darkness said Gh Mohammed a local resident.
The inhabitants of Kreeri alleged that department is adopting delay delaying tactics in repairing the defunct transformer and restoring electricity in our area.
The protestors while talking with The Kashmir Despatch said that we have been demanding repairing of damaged transformer several times in our locality but nobody is paying heed to our continuous requests and forced us to come to streets, locals alleged.
Meanwhile the angry protestors appealed the higher authorities to look into the matter and solve their geneiune demand.
When contacted Superintendent Engineer of North Bashir Ahmed Baba told the same thing which he already told Kashmir Despatch a weeks before that I will look into this matter and will redress it asap but nothing has been executed on ground and the residents of Kreeri continues to suffer.
However, the Junior Engineer of concern area Shabaz repeated the same words as his senior officer told.
