Poor quality wiring cause of electric short circuits in Chitral

CHITRAL: A number of cases have been reported in Chitral of houses catching fire due to electric short circuit. The reason for these incidences is none other than the use of substandard poorest quality electric wires that are brought to Chitral by the local shopkeepers and users buy them at the price of standard material, there being not much choice with them. Until a year back when the Golen powerhouse was not commissioned there was very low voltage and these wires would hold, but now with the availability of full strength voltage these low quality wiring are giving way one by one. It may be pointed out that almost everything available in Chitral markets is of low quality and much of the time fake and counterfeit stuff is sold with impunity. .. CN report, 13 Nov 2019
