Power crisis makes life a living hell for Jammuites: Harsh

Lambasting over callous attitude of state government for putting the masses of Jammu in dark, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party is going to organise a peaceful dharna outside the office of Chief Engineer M&RE (Power Deptt) Bhagwati Nagar Jammu on August 8.
Addressing the media persons, Harsh Dev Singh, while addressing media, said that the unprecedented power crisis during scorching summer had thrown life out of gear in both urban and rural areas with loudest shrills of people going un-heard and unresponded. He regretted that despite the pathetic plight of the people, the elected representatives had failed to effectively project their concerns. He deplored that rather than assuring a fail deal to the Jammu people, the BJP MLAs shamelessly agitated in the Assembly for enhancement of their salaries, perks and CDF etc. Strongly flaying the callous and insensitive attitude of the power Dev. Deptt., he said that the people of Jammu region were made to suffer immense hardships due to scorching heat and soaring humidity with no respite from scheduled and unscheduled power cuts despite assurances.
He regretted that in spite of persistent appeals to govt. to adhere to scheduled calendar on power supply and the repeated assurances of the govt., no action had been taken by the latter thus adding to the sufferings and distress of common man. He said that the Jammu region was the major sufferer with the govt and its ministers remaining mute spectators in the face of a critical and crisis like situation.
Gagan Partap Singh General Secretary Young Panthers and Krishan Lal Senior Party Leader were also present in the press conference.
