People in District Anantnag's Khiram area today staged a protest against the government and power development deportment and locked receiving station Khiram in the early morning affecting power supply.
Protesters levelled strong allegation on PDP MLA and NC MLC for politicizing the issue and said that both of them are using such issues for their vote bank politics.
"It is very unfortunate that both MLA and MLC are doing politics on the issue and they are very much concerned about their vote banks" Said one Mustaq Ahmad, adding that both of them are only visiting the station and every day they are making announcements on Radio and Television about the up gradation but nothing has been done on ground.
"Astonishingly main panel system of the receiving station got damaged months ago but till date department didn't succeed in replacing the system that adds to the sufferings of common masses." alleged, Farooq Ahmad, a resident of Khiram village.
Protesters were pacified by the Chief Engineer, PDD who talked to protesters over telephone and assured them that the problems regarding receiving station Khiram will be addressed on priority bases.
