Jammu :  Since the movement of the Civil Secretariat from Jammu, the people have been facing a hard time. The frequently irregular power cuts have caused a lot of trouble. Power outages have turned out to be disastrous over the last few months. 
The locals of the Makhanpur Chadka village in Bishnah area filed a case with the Bishnah Police Station under the supervision of the Chairman of Court, Devinder Singh, against the PDD’s Junior Engineer, who allegedly acted inappropriately with the locals previously.
The agitated natives then protested outside the PDD’s Sub-divisional office along with the Sarpanch of the Village, Vijendra Pal Singh. They argued that the unreliable power in the entire area is the concern of the people and they have every right to question the authorities. It is the responsibility of the concerned Department to respond to the people’s queries. However, the attitude of the JE and the way he back talked with them was not expected.
They have urged the PDD Minister and other authorities to take note of the incident and act sternly towards the employees who misconduct.
The village of Makhanpur Chadka  faces power cuts that last for days at a stretch. The people pressed that with the on going power cut ritual, their business, the studies of their children and the aged people are suffering the most.
