POONCH TODAY NEWS
POONCH: After a long time, Poonch got 132 kv transmission line realigned which was badly damaged during September 2014 flood, but after completing its work, PDD authorities are unable to provide regular power supply to the people of Poonch and this has irked people badly. Locals have alleged that it’s an act of administrative inefficiency.
Executive Engineer PDD also hiding his inefficiencies and rather than correcting departmental errors, he is giving unsatisfactory replies to public on social media. Business community members are also showing their frustration. Nishu Gupta, State Secy VHP, said, “Firstly, because of COVID, our business suffered and now power department is playing hide and seek during hot and humid days. From 20 years, we have been listening the same dialogue, “power peeche se band hai, 33 kv kharab hai.” Another senior citizen, pleading anonymity, said, “When administration is weak, you cannot expect performance and same thing has been going here.” From the last few days, PDD is unable to provide power supply and people appealed government to bring work oriented officers for ensuring smooth and regular power supply.
