People said that the concerned department has miserably failed to ensure adequate electricity even in the holy month of Ramadhan. “We fail to understand that even after being promised by the concerned department of substantial power supply in the holy month of Ramadhan why authorities are resorting to unusual power cuts,” said a local from Kupwara.

“The poor situation of electricity has exposed the tall claims of authorities,” said another resident from Handwara. “The department has even failed to ensure the electricity during Suhoor and Iftar time,” he added.

“We fail to understand why the department is not adhering to its own established schedule that too in the month of Ramadhan. Everyone was hoping that an adequate supply of electricity would be rendered to consumers in this holy month after the claims made by the concerned department before the beginning of Ramadhan, but those claims turned out to be false,” he added.

The residents have sought immediate intervention of Deputy Commissioner Kupwara Ayushi Sudan in this regard so that the hardships being faced by the people may end.
