Jammu region faces unabated discrimination in Power sector: JKNPP
Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party Chairman and former Minister Harsh Dev Singh today lambasted the state government for the unprecedented power cuts being affected in Jammu region, especially in the hinterland and far-flung areas during the ongoing summer season which had caused tremendous hardships and inconvenience to the common man.
Flaying the callous and insensitive attitude of the Power Development Department, Mr Singh in a statement issued here said the people of Jammu region are made to suffer the worst nightmares due to scorching heat and soaring humidity with no respite from scheduled and unscheduled power cuts.
The students are the worst sufferers, particularly those preparing for various examinations, he said and regretted that despite persistent appeals to the government to adhere to scheduled calendar on power supply and the repeated assurances of the government, no action has been taken thus adding to the woes and miseries of common man.
Jammu region has been the major sufferer with the government and its Ministers being mute spectators in the face of a critical and crisis like situation, he maintained.
