Lack of boundary wall, Balakot grid station turns into filth depot

Balakot

Due to lack of boundary wall and negligence on part of the authorities concerned, the Balakot grid station has turned into a garbage dump and pasture. Despite passage of 14 years after the destructive earthquake of October 08, 2005 measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale and tall claims of the elected representatives, the boundary wall of the 132KV Balakot grid station could not be reconstructed yet.
People residing around the facility throw the wastage in the grid station turning it into garbage dump. From dawn to dusk cattle are seen grazing in one side, in the boundary of the grid station and children mostly minors are found playing under the high tension power lines and near the installation of the grid station without fear of risk.—INP
