Low lying electric wire poses risk to life and property in Sopore

Sopore, Jan 11,  CNS: The low lying electric wire in Jalalabad Sopore area of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district has been posing risk to the life and property, while the concerned department is making no efforts to set it right.

A delegation from the area said the electric pole was damaged last year and the low lying electric wire has been posing serious threat to life and property.

They told CNS that sometimes, this low lying electric wire comes very close to speedy trucks and buses.

“For past several months, we apprised the PDD authorities about the matter; however no action has been taken so far. We approached Executive Engineer PDD Sopore many times and ironically last time he asked us to pool money and replace the electric pole themselves,” they said adding that they have already intimated police and in case of any mishap, concerned PDD officer should be held responsible.

Executive Engineer Power Development Department Sopore feigned ignorance about the matter and said that no delegation approached him so far, a claim refuted by locals. *(CNS)*
