Karachi: Hundreds of people are suffering from 12 hours long power load shedding on daily basis in Sachal Goth, a citizen said.
K-Electric (KE) is carrying out load shedding despite people pay their bill. The worst affectees from the load shedding are students, patients, old-age people and businessmen.
Sachal Goth’s residents have been facing electricity fluctuation and load-shedding up to 12 hours since last week, which has made their lives miserable. Students appearing in ninth and tenth examinations complained that their studies had been ruined due to power outages in day and night times.
Annoyed residents have showed concern over discriminating policy of K-Electric in rural areas of Karachi. They urged KE authorities to reduce load-shedding so that they could get rid of hot days and nights.
Meanwhile, a KE spokesmen claimed that residents of Sachal Goth were reluctant to pay Rs16 million outstanding electricity bills. However, he admitted that PMT was faulty in Sachal Goth which needed to be repaired.
