In Swabi the people of Chota Lahor tehsil blocked a major road in protest of the excessive electricity load shedding in the area.
Protesters in Chota Lahor-Yar Hussain Road expressed their anger against the Peshawar Electric Supply Company and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf lawmakers and local government representatives.
The protesters, led by Mufti Muneer and Dr. Asif, were demanding justice for the innocent people who lost their lives in the recent conflict.
The protesters have vowed to block the main artery leading into the city unless the Pesco authorities put an end to the excessive load shedding. They complain that they did not experience such prolonged power outages during winter.
The elected representatives have not bothered to take up the matter with Pesco officials, despite the fact that consumers in Chota Lahor experience frequent power outages.
The JI leader Dr. Asif said that, due to irregular power supply, consumers were receiving inflated electricity bills, forcing them to block the road. After the Pesco officials assured the protesters of an uninterrupted power supply, they dispersed.
