SOPORE: Even though mobile service in North Kashmirs restive Sopore town has partially been restored, but the pre-paid subscribers are still finding it hard to avail the recharge facility from any part of the town.
From last odd 40 days, the outlets of all the cellular companies are still shut while retailers are unwilling to restart their recharge business in the town.
Mobile towers are functional but the outlets are shut. We face immense problems as no retailer agrees to recharge our cell phones, Bharti Airtel pre-paid subscriber Muhammad Saleem told CNS.
Most of the pre-paid subscribers while seeking police intervention said that neither police nor the officials of the cellular companies are taking any measures to throw the mobile outlets open in the town. Pre-paid subscribers usually visit Srinagar or Baramulla to get recharge for their cell phone. It is strange that administration is maintaining silence over the issue and is not making any attempt to persuade these cellular companies to open up their showrooms, said a group of subscribers.
