The residents of Mir Mohallah of Soura have alleged that a local inhabitant, who was on oxygen concentrator support has lost his life after the Power Development Department (PDD) snapped electricity in the locality for opposing the installation of smart meters.
Blaming PDD department for the death of a patient, the residents said that the deceased was on the oxygen concentrator support, which functions on electricity only, but due to the snapping of electricity for many days, the person has lost his life.
“We demand justice as just for the reason of not installing the smart meters, the PDD has snapped the electricity in our area. There are so many people who are on oxygen support,” said a group of locals.
The locals said that even to make the arrangement for the funeral, they need electricity, which has been snapped days ago.
Meanwhile, a senior official from the PDD said that the electricity in the area has been snapped as the residents didn’t allow the installation of smart meters, adding that the concerned Tehsildar and SHO are also aware about it.
“My sympathies are with the family, if there was any such medical emergency, there should have been necessary alternatives or arrangements made. Yes, the electricity is snapped in the area as the people did not allow the installation of smart meters,” he said.
The official said that even today they had sent a team to the area for the installation of smart meters but were again stopped by locals of the area.
