Srinagar, Dec 18: The residents of Munshi Mohalla, Kawdara demand relocation of an “additional” transformer, provided by PDD, from their area saying they are not in need of it.
The locals said the Power Development Department (PDD) in August installed an additional transformer 220 KV in the area which provided power supply for “just two days”.
They said the PDD officials disconnected power supply from this transformer following a dispute between some householders. For the last four months, the transformer is lying without functioning thereby leading to wastage of state resource, they said.
“We took the matter to DC Srinagar and Chief Engineer PDD but they failed to restore power supply from this transformer,” the residents said.
They said while Valley is reeling under darkness, this transformer is not serving any purpose. “We don’t need this as we already have a 420 KV transformer,” they said.
The locals said a complaint has also been registered in Governors Grievance cell on December 5 under compliant number 999001012188 by a resident Rashid Ahmad and the same compliant was forwarded to Chief Engineer PDD on December 14.
“Now we request the administration to issue directions to the concerned authorities to relocate this 220 KV transformer to some other areas which needs it so that the deserving people could avail the benefit from it during the winter,” the locals said.

Srinagar, April 23: Alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to promote propaganda for 2019 Lok Sabha elections by trying to bring Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination, senior Congress leader and former union minister Prof Saifuddin Soz on Tuesday said reasons being given for stopping Cross-Line of Control (LoC) trade were highly untenable and indefensible.

“PM Modi wants to promote propaganda for Election 2019 and tries to bring in Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination”, Soz said in a statement here.

He alleged that since everything is happening at the behest of Prime Ministers Office (PMO), stopping the LOC trade between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad all of a sudden, is seen by the trading communities on both sides, as part of a “trickery” aimed at the Election-2019.
