Budgam village without electricity from past 4 years

BUDGAM: Believe it or not, Mulashula, a village in Beerwa Budgam is without electricity for the past 4 years.    

“The electricity to the village was cut in the year 2008 after a 63 KV transformer got damaged due to over loading and after that no transformer was installed in the village as a result the village comprised of more than 110 houses are reeling under darkness from past 4 years,” the locals told CNS adding they had been running from pillar to post since then to get the electricity restored to the village.

The villagers alleged that they had demanded a new transformer and for that purpose AEE and JEE of the concerned area demanded bribe from them and the villagers collected money and handed over Rs 3500 to them. “We even approached the concerned MLA but nothing so far has been done to supply electricity to our area,” they said adding that transformer is not being installed in the area on the pretext of ‘incomplete’ field report.

When contacted, a top PDD official said that he will look into the matter and will ensure that transformer gets installed in the area at an earliest. (CNS)
