Protest staged against unannounced power cuts in Peshawar
People burnt tires to protest against unannounced loadshedding in excruciating hot weather. The district mayor also participated in the protest.
The loadshedding-fatigued people said they were being punished for inefficiency of the institutions.
“Life has become paralysed due to unannounced loadshedding of 18-20 hours,” they said.
The situation of electricity is almost the same in every part of the country. People have to suffer all the day without electricity.
Story of the biggest city of country, Karachi, is no different. People have to face long hours unannounced loadshedding besides daily power cuts.
The power utility supplying electricity to Karachi had earlier assured the government that it will cut the hours of the load shedding in case of the scorching weather. The promise, however, not fulfilled in recent hot spell in the metropolis.
Pakistan Meteorological Department has also predicted hot and dry weather across country: “the weather would remain extremely hot and dry in most parts of the country during the day, however Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA, Islamabad, Punjab, Gilgit and Baltistan and some parts of Quetta, Zhob, Sibbi, Sukker and Larkana are likely to receive heavy rain and gusty winds from Monday (today) to Thursday after evening.”
