GOVT RAPPED TO LOADSHEDDING

Chairmen of different union councils flayed the government failure to overcome the energy crisis, saying the rulers have broken all previous records of bad governance.

Talking to media, UC chairman Abdus Sattar said that 16-18 hours electricity loadshedding has made the public lives miserable but the rulers’ performance is restricted to claims and advertisement only.

Nizampura UC chairman Mehr Muhammad Latif said that the rulers have nothing to do with serving public, adding that they are in power only to fulfil their personal interests.

Another UC Chairman Sardar Muhammad Dogar said that the government is not interested in introducing long-lasting public welfare programmes rather they are busy completing Metro like ineffective projects which they could advertise in their election campaign.

Chairmen Sardar Liaqat Dogar, Mobeen Ghaznavi and Mian Rafi urged the government to take effective steps to overcome the crisis. They warned to take to streets if the government remains unable to fulfil the public needs.
