Jammu Tawi, May 27
Hundreds of activists of Shiv Shakti Sena led by their president Rakesh Gupta held demonstration against irregular power supply at main stop, near fish market, Janipur Jammu today.
The protesters raised slogans against Minister for Power Development Department (PDD) and Chief Engineer, EM&RE, and burnt their effigy for their alleged failure to provide uninterrupted power supply to the electricity consumers, who are paying huge amounts as electricity tariff but facing frequent curtailment even during the peak summer season.
While addressing the protesters, Rakesh Gupta stated that state administration and especially PDD is totally bent upon to cause harassment to general public. He alleged that PDD is not serious to stop frequent curtailment, unscheduled cuts and fluctuation, causing havoc on the poor section of the society. Gupta warned th state government and PDD to take serious notice of this drawback in the PDD and electricity supply so as to restore smooth uninterrupted supply of electricity to the consumers, paying heavy dues. Among others present in the protest included Deep Gupta, Satpal Sharma, Devanshu, Sonu Kumar, Ashwani Gupta, Kaka, Rahul Gupta and Aman Kumar.
