It is disheartening to note that, in this modern era, people are deprived of electricity. It is being said these days as reportedly leading to the electricity shortfall.
President JKBC, General Secretary (Org) KTMF/Chairman City Traders Guild Mohammad Altaf Dar said We often read in newspapers that electricity is expensive because the government has to pay a substantial amount of money to independent power plants for their power creation capacity. Then, where is that electricity for which the government pays them so much? The government has increased the rate of electricity significantly. Consumers are given hefty bills to pay, but electricity is not available. This is cruelty. Please stop this cruelty and let the masses breathe a sigh of relief.
