SRINAGAR: The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCC&I) has condemned the new strategy adopted by PDD of black listing power defaulters (domestic consumers) by pasting their names at local residential mosques.
While terming this step as highly deplorable, shocking and shameful, it has urged the PDD to refrain from such unreasonable juvenile tactics and at once desist, so as to avoid embarrassment to itself and the Govt.
The KCC&I feels that using religious places for such preposterous and cheap gimmicks is unacceptable, unpardonable and shows the PDD in very poor light and belittles its higher-ups, it said in a statement.
Mosques are sanctum – sanctorum and are revered as per Islamic teachings and traditions, the Govt. officials misusing it to fulfill its own shortcomings, mismanagement, incompetence and inefficiency is bound to have negative effect, the statement said.
Also, as per the PDD chief, regarding the supposedly embarrassment that this action is deemed to cause, we would strongly suggest to the PDD and its officials, who while hallucinating devise such ridiculous and bizarre tactics that it would be in the fitness of things if instead it would formulate a committee and include KCC&I into it to look into the T&D losses which are extremely high and a source of perennial embarrassment to the PDD and also focus its attention towards providing uninterrupted quality supply of electricity to its consumers.
