Srinagar: Scores of residents of Bamhama Hamelt in northern Kashmir’s Kupwara district Tuesday morning blocked Srinagar-Kupwara highway in protest against the failure of authorities to get their electricity transformer repaired for last twenty days.
“Our transformer has suffered some technical gag due to which that was sent for department purpose but more than two weeks have gone past and the transformer hasn’t been fixed so far despite notifying the officials time to time,” the residents said.
They said that despite assurances from higher authorities the concerned department hardly pays heed to their sufferings.
Later police reached the spot and assured the protesters that their demands will be fulfilled by notifying the concerned department for timely action.
