This is from rural area of Sindh. In addition to the ‘regular’ loadshedding, the residents of some rural areas of Shikarpur Sindh have been facing severe voltage fluctuation for many weeks. This is causing severe damage to electrical appliances. The fluctuation has become so severe that electronic gadgets are damaged. Recently fluctuation caused my cell phone charger to burn, the fridge`s compressor makes erratic sounds, fans are not working properly and even energy savers are providing dim light. On Eid day the transformer on our street burnt out due to fluctuations and heavy load. Various complaints have been lodged with the local SEPCO office but our complaints have fallen on deaf ears. Who is to be blamed for all this? I earnestly request the SEPCO to pay heed to our problem at the earliest.
