Pakistan: Dera women, residents protest excessive load shedding in Chota Lahor tehsil

| @indiablooms | 17 May 2024, 07:59 pm

Dera women and residents of Chota Lahor tehsil in Pakistan recently blocked road to demonstrate against excessive load shedding in the region.

Women stormed the local grid station and blocked road against ‘cruel’ loadshedding spanning more than 20 hours a day, reported Dawn News.

During the demonstration, the protesters were chanting slogans against Peshawar Electric Supply Company, Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur and Governor Faisal Karim Kundi, who both belong to Dera.

The women first held a demonstration outside the Pesco offices, and later reached the grid station and blocked the road to traffic there, the news paper reported.

The protesters targeted political leaders and said they made tall claims during the election campaign, but when they won, they failed to resolve the electricity problem facing the people of Dera.
