SRINAGAR, Nov 6: National Conference today castigated the PDP-BJP Government for its colossal failure in providing basic necessities to the people of the State.
“It is such a shame that this Government has done little to nothing in improving power generation capabilities of the State. The deplorable electricity scenario has thrown life out of gear in Kashmir, with students and business community the worst sufferers. Mehbooba Mufti whose father late Mufti Mohammad Syeed promised free electricity to people before coming to power owes a lot of answers,” NC General Secretary and MLA Khanyar, Ali Mohammad Sagar said after an extensive tour to city areas in Srinagar
Sagar said that Mehbooba Mufti had on record said that the PDP can spend Rs 10,000 crore for ensuring 24 hour power supply to the valley, adding as to what had happened to her promises.
He further said that the business community and the students have been worst victims of this power crisis and are facing tremendous problems.
“The situation is so grim that it is forcing many business establishments to shut down their operations early in the evening,” Sagar added.
He said that the situation has gone from bad to worse in Srinagar with the water supply too playing hide and seek.
He said that the Department of Public Health Engineering is resorting to water cuts for hours together making life miserable for people in city and adjoining areas.
