JAMMU, Aug 12: Member Legislative Council (MLC), Ch. Vikram Randhawa, today inaugurated 250KVA transformer at Apna Vihar, Kunjwani in Gandhi Nagar Assembly segment.
While addressing the public on the occasion, Randhawa said that it was the long pending demand of the people of the area which was brought to his notice a month ago. He acting swiftly directed officials of the Power Development Department (PDD) to install a new transformer in the area as the existing transformer was unable to bear the load.

Acting upon this Randhawa immediately released the desired amount of Rs 8 lakh out of his Constituency Development Fund (CDF) for the installation of the transformer which was dedicated today to the public. The public of the area was suffering badly due to unscheduled power cuts and low voltage.
Randhawa said that the BJP is committed to provide all basic amenities to the public at their doorsteps and power is one among them but at the same time he urged upon the people to make judicious use of the power and switch off all lights and other electronic gadgets which are not in use.
The locals complimented Ch. Vikram Randhawa for his sincere and swift action as they were in imminent need of the transformer. The locals said that they were suffering a lot following unscheduled power cuts in such a humid climate. They extended full support to the BJP in the coming future.
