Zubair Ahmad, a local told GMK , that they are facing immense hardships in absence of the proper voltage. He said they are paying electricity tariff bills regularly, but the department is not providing the voltage as per the schedule.


“The PDD officials have now installed an alternate transformer in our village, but still our Mohalla (Khan Mohalla) is facing immense hardships in absence of the proper voltage” they said.


The residents said that in these boon chilling cold nights they aren’t able to charge their electronic gadgets, which is giving tough time to people here.


“Due to non-availability of electricity the residents are facing immense inconveniences. Various examinations are under way but students are not able to concentrate on their studies,” said another resident.
