Pakistan: JUIF members demonstrate in Wara Mamond against long electricity load shedding

Khar, Pakistan: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUIF) members on Sunday protested against hours-long electricity loadshedding in Wara Mamond tehsil in Pakistan and elsewhere in the district, media reports said on Tuesday.

The protesters gathered at Shago Chowk in the Wara Mamond area and shouted slogans against the government.

They blocked the Sewai-Loy Kharkay and Sewai-Gotkay roads for traffic and demanded the government to put a halt to the unscheduled electricity load shedding in their area or else they would launch a strong protest movement against the power supply company, reports The News International.

Speaking on the occasion, JUIF general secretary Maulana Laiq, Village Council-33 chairman Hussain Ali and others told the newspaper that residents of the area were faced with great hardships due to the frequent power cuts.

They said that there was an acute shortage of water at homes and mosques due to non-availability of electricity for weeks while the power supply company had turned a blind eye to the issue.
