Pakistan: Protesters demonstrate over excessive power cuts in Mohmand

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 06 Dec 2023, 07:28 pm

Locals blocked the Peshawar-Bajaur highway for over three hours in front of the Ghalanai grid station in Pakistan's Mohmand district against excessive power cuts, media reports said.

The protesters, who were carrying black flags, chanted slogans against the Tribal Electric Supply Company (Tesco) and the district administration, and demanded an end to the excessive and unjust loadshedding, reported Dawn News.

A large number of passengers were stranded due to the protest.

On the occasion, members of Haq Do Movement, including Abdul Majeed, Safdar Khan, Abdul Hameed and others, said prolonged loadshedding had paralysed the entire district, reported Dawn News.

The road blockade ended after additional assistant commissioners Sikandar Khan and Usman Hamza assured them that the residents would be supplied electricity for three hours from each feeder under an agreement reached a year ago.
