Few inches of snow trigger darkness in parts of valley

KL Report


Few inches of snowfall turned most of the areas of valley in darkness raising question mark over government’s tall claims. People complained of immense problems on Monday as electricity was missing in many areas.

Residents of Bemina, Qamarwari, Padshahbagh, Narbal, Ahmadnagar, and other areas told KNS that they received a few shots of electricity barely for a few minutes on Monday.

“Authorities always assure us of doing everything during the crisis but when it comes to reality they fail to do so,” Bashir Ahmad of Bemina said adding the power authorities should own the moral responsibility for the failure and tender apology to the people forthwith.

Meanwhile, the people of district headquarters, villages and far flung areas also complained about the power cuts.

According to the inhabitants of district Kupwara, unavailability of electricity and other facilities have made their lives miserable. They also said snowfall has damaged distribution lines in remote areas.

“Within less than an hour, like in the past, electricity was snapped in our areas, chilling weather condition has added to our woe. Electricity disappeared from our village with first snowflakes touching the earth. It is now more than 10 hours and there is no hope to get the power supply,” said Showkat Ahmad Kar of Ashipora Handwara.
