JAMMU: Vijay Bakaya, former Chief Secretary and General Secretary of Apni Party on Thursday expressed grave concern over erratic power supply during the ongoing scorching summer in Jammu in general and Sidhra and Tawi Vihar areas of the City in particular.“The poor maintenance and faulty power supply by the Power Development Department is deplorable and highly condemnable”, Bakaya said in a statement issued here, adding that the residents are being subjected to unbearable harassment daily by the frequent and long unexplained interruptions in this hot summer.Bakaya lambasted the PDD for not maintaining the transmission network and allowing frequent faults to occur which takes too long to repair.He said the department has no roadmap for ensuring regulated power supply in Jammu, which is reeling under intense heat.If this is the scenario now, what will be the plight in ensuing weeks when the mercury rises further and humidity gets intense, he asked.Bakaya demanded that the PDD should tell the residents why there has been deterioration in power supply after improvement in the transmission network had been claimed to have been made.He hoped that the PDD would not turn a deaf ear to the pleas of the residents who claim no special treatment but only demand scheduled uninterrupted power supply and proper maintenance.Bakaya sought intervention at the top level for undertaking course correction in the system and to ensure regulated power supply to the residents.
