Frequent power breakdowns blight lives of Karachi’s citizens
Unannounced power breakdowns in different areas of Karachi has become an order of the day. Residents of several areas complained of frequent power outages and castigated the power utility ‘K-Electric’ for not notifying the maintenance shutdown on time.
Whatever else it may do, #loadshedding makes one realise what hardship those w/o cooling appliances suffer during summer. Allah rehem!
