Naudero: Local SEPCO authorities have disconnected 13 Pole Mounted Transformers on the pretext of huge arrears due to which 75% of this town plunged into darkness and the citizens suffered a lot in this scorching hot weather.
Disconnecting electric supply during these extremely unbearable hot days amount to depriving the people of their basic necessity. Local labour leaders Shahab Khan Shaikh & Mumtaz Sethar have expressed concern on removal of the PMTs and termed it violation of basic rights.
