People upset due to power cut in many areas of Kashmir
With the onset of winter in Jammu and Kashmir, the power crisis has started deepening. At the same time, politics regarding this has also intensified. Every big and small leader of the state has started baking political bread on this issue. Vice President of Jammu and Kashmir Awami National Conference, Muzaffar Shah, while talking about the power crisis, said that if the Lieutenant Governor works by switching off the electricity of Raj Bhavan once, then he will know how many problems people face in dealing with the darkness.
Muzaffar Shah has said that when Jammu and Kashmir administration has enough money then why are they not saving people from this crisis by purchasing more electricity. Criticizing the administration, he said that Jammu and Kashmir itself produces hydroelectric power, so why is there a problem of electricity here?

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti, while talking about the power crisis, said that during her government, when the power crisis was severe, she used to provide relief to the people by running gas turbines. According to Mufti, electricity fees have been increased even after smart meters have been installed in the Union Territory.
Omar Abdullah said – the government is cheating
Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah has said that the present government has been cheating the people in the name of development. He said that this government is throwing dust in the eyes of the people even in the name of electricity. After all, what are the reasons that the entire electricity system is not being improved? The situation was not so bad during his tenure. He asked that when the administration has plenty of money, then why is it not purchasing electricity?
The cut schedule has also been released
It is noteworthy that last month a schedule was issued by Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited. According to the schedule, a curtailment of four and a half hours per day was announced in metered areas and eight hours in unmetered areas in the valley. The company had attributed this power cut to the reduction in electricity production in winter.
