Army Taking Over Power Grid Stations To Restore Power Supply In Jammu And Kashmir
The Divisional Commissioner of Jammu has sought help from the Indian Army to restore electricity in the division.
Many districts of J&K plunge into darkness after power department engineers went on strike yesterday over the government’s plan to privatise the power sector. The J&K administration this evening held talks with the representatives of engineers who went on strike.
However, the talks failed to yield any results. Now, keeping in view the hardships being faced by the people, the civil administration has sought the help of the Army to restore the power supply in J&K
The letter written by the Divisional Commissioner says, “It is to bring to your notice that due to strike by Electricity Department personnel in UT of J&K, essential services have been severely affected in the region.”
“We would hereby require Indian army in restoring the essential services,” the letter read.
