The failure of the administration has once again come to the lime light. The government has again failed to anticipate the difficulties that the people faced due to the snowfall as major roads of Kashmir remained clogged and power supply got snapped. Rather than drawing an immediate plan to deal with the difficulties, a continuous approach to overcome the hassles particularly due to the power outages should have been relied upon. Government has admitted that the power infrastructure in the JK was not adequate to deal with the load of the people during the peak hours. Hundreds of distribution transformers have been damaged due to the extra-load on the infrastructure as Power Development department (PDD) has failed to anticipate the increase in demand of power. Kashmir has remained in the grip of unrest for over six months and the failure of the administration to remove bottlenecks is sure to further intensify the anger against the present dispensation. Difficulties which the snowfall has posed have prevailed as a major issue. The administrative mechanism has seen a near collapse in Kashmir, which could have been avoided after necessary advance measures. Snow brings with it the standard set of miseries: blocked roads, freezing of water supply lines and snapping of power infrastructure. A mechanism to deal with such emergency situations should have been made a permanent feature of governance, rather than evoking a cosmetic response. Shortfall in manpower or resources could only be compensated through early preparations and people’s grievances should be seen as a feedback to improve on the governance delivery. Advance arrangements should be made in tandem with the people and the divisional administration to lessen the effects of natural weather changes like snowfall. government can’t escape the responsibility that should comply with its commitment towards people to provide them basic amenities including uninterrupted power supply. A complete revamp of the power infrastructure and making it adequate to meet the demands of the growing population should be a serious agenda for the government to set its priority. The distribution infrastructure has not been upgraded for years while the government reels out its set of achievements including the works rendered to generate the hydel power.
