APHC expresses concern over decision of privatisation of PDD in J&K

Srinagar, Dec 20 (KNS): All Parties Hurriyat Conference on Monday expressed concern over the decision to privatise assets of the power Department in Jammu and Kashmir and merge it with the Power Grid Corporation of India. 

According to a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), APHC said that such kind of a merger has not taken place anywhere in India.

The statement reads that it becomes obvious that the policy of seizure of natural resources of J&K by the government continues, leading to anxiety and unease among the people and fear for loss of their resources.

APHC said that it supports the demands of employees of the Power Development Department (now Corporation) of Jammu and Kashmir in this regard.

The statement also reads that it is unfortunate that Jammu and Kashmir, which is rich in water and other natural resources, has not been able to solve the problem of electricity even after seven decades and the consequences are borne by the Kashmiris in winters and the people of Chenab and Jammu in summers. 

“Instead of addressing this issue those in power are furthering their agenda of disempowering the people of J&K and usurping our resources,” it reads. (KNS)
