Srinagar, Dec 04:   Kashmir Trade Alliance(KTA) Friday said that the unscheduled power cuts by the power  department is an injustice to the Kashmiri people.

KTA president Ajaz Shahdhar alleged that the entire valley including the city has been plunged into complete darkness by the PDD department.

“The unavailability of electricity has taken a serious turn in the entire valley and has forced consumers to pay their electricity bills without electricity,” he said.

Shahhdar said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, thousands of patients are being provided oxygen at home at present but due to non-availability of electricity, "these patients and their families are facing severe difficulties"

"Similarly,  the examinations of the students are also going on at present and their studies are getting severely disrupted," he said.

KTA President said that due to non-availability of electricity consumers, especially traders, industrialists and factory owners have been facing a lot of difficulties.

"Small manufacturers are suffering ver the unavailability of electricity. Every year big claims are made to increase power generation, to build new power projects, but nothing has changed on the ground," he said.
