Pakistan: Karachi residents demonstrate against prolonged load-shedding

| @indiablooms | 01 Jul 2024, 07:14 pm

Citizens of Lyari, including women and children, who were joined by Edhi Foundation’s Faisal Edhi, recently demonstrated in Pakistan's Karachi city against prolonged loadshedding in the old areas on Sunday.

The rally started from Ath Chowk amid scorching heat at 2pm and after passing through different routes reached the Karachi Press Club (KPC), reported Dawn News.

Faisal Edhi joined the demonstration briefly in Lyari.

Speaking to the media on this occasion, Edhi was quoted as saying by Dawn News that several people had died of suspected heatstroke in the metropolis as the Edhi Foundation’s mortuaries were filled with bodies.

However, the government was saying that only ‘12 to 13’ people had died, which was a ‘misrepresentation’ of facts, he added.
