A persistent water deficit and an annoying electricity supply are having a negative impact on customers.
Sept. 17 in Srinagar: On Sunday, Zadibal Tanvir Sadiq, the chief spokesperson for the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference and the constituency’s in charge, raised worry over the lack of power and running water in many parts of Srinagar.
According to a statement from Tanvir, having access to power and water is necessary to carry out daily home tasks. “Just when we most need water, some communities’ taps have been dry for almost a week. The authorities have not acted despite many complaints. Residents of the Downtown regions, frustrated by these repeated issues, underlined their pleas to the relevant authority, but to no avail. To suit their needs, many purchase bottled water. The concerned agency ignores the numerous requests from the public for water tankers. There is no difference in the situation with respect to electricity. There have been days of darkness in several parts of downtown, especially in Rainawari.
Tanvir begged the responsible authorities to solve Srinagar’s water and electricity problems, saying that things were growing worse since residents were only receiving power and energy for a few hours at a time. “Those most severely impacted include residents of Batpora, Hazratbal, Kashmir University, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Saderbal, Saida Kadal Elahi Bagh, Gulab Bagh, Soura, Anchar, Nowshera, Lal Bazar, Raina wari, Zadibal, Alasteng, Shuhama, Habak, Zukra, and different portions of Ganderbal.The lack of a consistent water supply is also having a negative impact on the surrounding regions of Kral Khud, Haba Kadal, Chinkrar Mohalla, Basant Bagh, Nai Sarak, and Gaw Kadal. I’m hoping the government will take both short-term and long-term measures to solve the problem. I want people to use water and power sparingly, he continued.
