Banglahunt Desk: After 73 years of independence, India got another new independence. As many as 14,000 residents of three villages in Pakistan's Kupwara district have spent half of the year in darkness due to heavy snowfall. This time the problem is going away.
This time I got electricity service
A project of Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited has provided electricity services to Keran, Mundian and Patru villages. A 33 kV line has been installed, a connecting station has been installed and in all, a total of 989 poles have been installed across the area.
Earnings will also increase
Previously, solar and diesel engine generators were the only hope. With the addition of new power lines from now on, they will get 24 hours power service. As a result, their daily work as well as bread earnings will increase.
The work has been done while maintaining the borders
These three grenades are just 500 meters from the Line of Control (LOC). That is why the organization had to work in a restrained manner keeping in mind the border area. Mohammad Aijaz Asad, managing director of Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited, said, “Since these areas are close to the LOC, we have to keep in mind the geographical boundaries, especially when installing poles and high extension cables.”
Locals also helped in the lockdown
This work, which has been going on for the last two years, has been completed quickly, especially in the last two weeks of July. Mohammed Eyes said, ‘The locals have also been able to cooperate in this work due to the lockdown. As a result, the whole thing was done in a very short time. '
