Villagers protest against PDD

Excelsior Correspondent
UDHAMPUR, Feb 9: Locals of Dubbi Gali, Nali Nikka and Basnote in Panchari, who are without electricity for the last six days, held a strong protest demonstration against the Power Development Department, here today.
The protesting villagers raised slogans against the PDD authorities and the State Government for being insensitive towards their plight.  They said that  Dubbi Gali, Basnot and Nali Nikka villages are without electricity for the last six days because of damage to  main HT line near Dubbi Gali following  devastating wind storm and felling of a pine tree on the line.
Despite repeated requests by the locals, no  initiative has been taken by the PDD authorities to  restore the power supply as only one lineman is looking after the entire area from Pathi to Khadandra Valley Nali Nikka.
