Lower Dir: Residents of Samarbagh region in Pakistan on Saturday staged a protest rally against excessive electricity outages and shortage of staff at the Nadra and BISP offices, media reports said.

The protesters blocked the main Shahi Road for some time and chanted slogans against the government for its failure to meet their demands, reports Dawn News.

The rally was addressed by Samarbagh tehsil chairman Saeed Ahmad, Haji Rehman, Hameed Khan.

Ahmad threatened that people would lock the BISP and Nadra offices if the required staff was not deputed there.

The other speakers regretted that the poor people, including women, were being humiliated as they had to stand in long queues for hours for receiving a 10-kilogram flour bag, which was also of substandard quality.
