Dangling electric wires, decaying electric poles pose threat to Pulwama residents

Dangling electric wires tied with trees, worn out wooden poles are posing grave threat to the lives of people as well as to their property in Rakh, Zahid Bagh and Darbagh area of Litter hamlet in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district

The residents of these areas alleged that they are living under constant fear due to low lying electric wires tied with trees in their villages and the electric wires have been tied with trees and decaying electric poles.

They said that the electric lines touch roofs of houses and trees on roads posing risk to life and property and due to low lying overhead transmission lines.

We have been requesting the concerned department to replace the dangling and damaged electric wires and poles but our pleas fell on deaf ears, said Gulzar Ahmad a local resident.

He said last in back to village programmes every year we have demanded electric poles and wires in the area on ground nothing has been done.

All low tension wires in our village are have been tied with trees in absence of poles due to which the wires are very low and the wires are very weak which often get damaged, said Mohammed Yousuf another local resident.

He added that we have taken up this issue with administration several times but on ground nothing has been done.

Locals requested higher ups to look into the matter and provide us with new electric wire and poles.
