Power cuts force social, political organizations to protest

The workers of Dogra Front and Shiv Sena (AG) under the leadership of Ashok Gupta took out a protest in Jammu City against the shortage of electricity by burning an electric cooler.
While speaking on the occasion, Ashok Gupta said that since yesterday’s heavy wind and rain there has been no electricity since past 16 hours.
He said that every year the people of Jammu are made to suffer during summers on account of power cuts and non-supply of drinking water. In these days, when the temperature is soaring only electricity and drinking water can provide some relief from scorching heat but unfortunately both these commodities have gone out of the reach of a common citizen.
A coordination committee should be formed for Jammu area for water and electricity as when the secretariat shifts to Srinagar the needs of Jammu are neglected. The committee will keep an eye on the needs of the people and will resolve the problems reporting directly to the CM.
The party people who were present at the time of protest were Sukhdev Singh, Rakesh, Bantu, Krishan Lal, Pardeep and Sandeep.
