Srinagar: Privatization of electricity in Jammu and Kashmir is yet another debatable issue and has received severe backlash from the general public.
The Department has already started the process of installation of the required equipments but people are yet clueless as to why should the electricity be privatized.
On one hand Power Development Department fails to collect the monthly fee from some highly influential people and some departments and at the same time the poor are charged a hefty amount of money on monthly basis.
It is pertinent to mention that the news of prepaid electric metres is making rounds and has created a lot of confusion among the people.
“On what basis has the PDP-BJP government given a nod to its privatization”? Asked a local resident.
“They are trying to loot our resources as the government has given the said contract to TATA, KEI and LNT companies, it is all about money and nothing else” said a student who wants the concerned department to come out and speak about it.
