KASHMIR NEWS TRUST #KNT
Unscheduled power cuts in Central Kashmir’s Budgam villages during the time of Sehri and Iftar are taking a heavy toll on people observing the fasting month of Ramadan.
Power cuts have become a new norm now in the Beerwah villages including SK Pora, Sodipora, Khag and Rusu.
“There used to be power cuts in this holy month but not so frequent as these are today. During this month the power scenario was much better than during past years,” a local Bashir Ahmed told the news agency Kashmir News Trust.
“Sehri and Iftaar are the only times when the power outage strikes and that is the time we need electricity the most,” he said.
Another local Advocate Inayat Ahmed said despite the judicious use of electricity, people are being deprived of this necessity during this holy month.
Locals appealed to the concerned department to look into the matter. [KNT]
