Ex­press­ing se­ri­ous con­cern over the dam­ages caused to Lis­sar Power Grid Sta­tion due to re­cent snow­fall leav­ing Kok­er­nag, Veeri­nag and other ad­join­ing ar­eas with­out elec­tric­ity, the J&K Pradesh Congress Com­mit­tee (JKPCC) Pres­i­dent G.A. Mir has urged upon the Gover­nor Ad­min­is­tra­tion to re­store the Grid Sta­tion with­out any fur­ther loss of time. This was stated by G. A. Mir while in­ter­act­ing with the lo­cal del­e­ga­tions, who called on him at Veeri­nag to­day, brief­ing him about other is­sues of pub­lic im­por­tance.

The del­e­ga­tions ap­prised the JKPCC Pres­i­dent about the prob­lems con­fronting peo­ple of Veeri­nag, Kok­er­nag and other ad­join­ing ar­eas in ab­sence of Elec­tric­ity,

They also ap­prised him about the an­guish among the stu­dents pre­par­ing for dif­fer­ent ex­ams, who are not able to study in ab­sence of the elec­tric­ity. They also sought ad­e­quate com­pen­sa­tion to the Or­chardists in Kash­mir and else­where, who have suf­fered heav­ily due to the re­cent snow­fall. Ex­press­ing se­ri­ous con­cern over the prob­lems con­fronting peo­ple in Veeri­nag, Kok­er­nag and sur­round­ing ar­eas, G.A. Mir blamed that Di­vi­sional Ad­min­is­tra­tion for fail­ing to make Lis­sar Grid Sta­tions func­tional, say­ing that few inches of snow have ex­posed the pre­pared­ness of the Govt. Mir em­pha­sized that there was an im­me­di­ate need to re­store the Grid Sta­tion to en­sure that com­mon peo­ple as well as stu­dents do not suf­fer on ac­count of Elec­tric­ity, urg­ing upon the Di­vi­sional Ad­min­is­tra­tion to gear up, mak­ing PDD ac­count­able and an­swer­able for fail­ing to ad­dress the con­cern of the peo­ple, be­sides en­sur­ing that Lis­sar Grid Sta­tion is re­stored forth­with, he said and urged that ad­e­quate com­pen­sa­tion to Or­chardists in Kash­mir and Else­where, af­ter as­sess­ing the losses, be en­sured, at the ear­li­est.
