A long hour of halt to power supply is making it extremely difficult for the students to prepare for board exams in Jammu and Kashmir. Students are facing a tough time to prepare for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) term II exams which commenced across the country since April 26 due to power crisis in J&K.

Parents are extremely angry over the administration, reportedly due to major power crisis going on in the region which is hampering their children’s studies and their career is at stake. One of the parent said that there is something like homework and preparedness which government failed to do for ensuring adequate power supplies during the prestigious CBSE exams.

One of the student said that it is extremely difficult to study without electricity amid rising mercury.

Parents and students have made an urge to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and solve the issue of prevailing power crisis.

The situation of power crisis has deepened in the Union Territory due to which tensions and problems have increased among people of UT. In some areas, anguished people, including women and farmers, have hit the streets. Meanwhile the Jammu and Kashmir government on April 27 has said that in order to meet the increasing electricity demand in J&K, the Union government has allocated 207 MW additional Power to the Union Territory.
