SRINAGAR, Nov 21: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari Tuesday accused incumbent administration of depriving people from adequate electricity. He said it is unfair to give a collective punishment to people in present harsh weather conditions.
Bukhari while speaking to reporters accused J&K administration of depriving people from adequate electricity supply in the ongoing winters.
“Administration is punishing people by not purchasing additional electricity from outside J&K. As we know meters are installed and consumers are paying electricity dues regularly, so I feel it is injustice with people if they are not being provided adequate electricity supply in the ongoing winter,” Bukhari said.
“It is unfair to give collective punishment to people in winters,” Bukhari said and added, “The J&K administration should seek more funds from Centre for making electricity available to the people of J&K”.
It is pertinent to mention that Kashmir valley is currently gripped under severe cold with poor power supply across the length and breadth of J&K. (KNS)
