Power restored in far flung areas of Kashmir Valley
Srinagar: Power supply in the snow-bound
valley has become almost normal with the state electricity
department ensuring working of almost all the 19 power
stations including those in far flung Lolab and Tangdhar areas
of North Kashmir.
750 MW was made available to the entire valley last night
and electricity has been restored in areas like Lolab and
Tangdhar, a senior Power Development Department (PDD) official
Unprecedented snowfall on January 7 had plunged the
Kashmir Valley into darkness with power lines getting snapped
due to the heavy fall.
However, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah personally led the
relief mission and stationed himself in the Valley to ensure
early restoration of power.
A helicopter of the state government was kept at the
disposal of the power department to fly engineers anywhere,
the official said.
He said electricity was restored everywhere barring some
areas in South Kashmir, like higher reaches of Kokernag, which
was still experiencing snowfall.
