LAKKI MARWAT – Activists of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf have warned of blocking roads and holding protest demonstrations if excessive power outages are not stopped forthwith.

In a meeting held here on Tuesday under the chair of a senior PTI leader Ahmad Nawaz, the workers went down hard on local Pesco officials and accused them of carrying out unscheduled loadshedding in the urban and rural localities of the district.

They told that 18 hours long electricity load shedding in Lakki city and rural areas of the district was intolerable.

“Despite paying huge and inflated bills people cannot use electricity facility due to excessive load shedding”, they told. The PTI workers said that the rulers failed to deliver during the last over four years therefore they should resign forthwith.

They added that to tackle the load shedding hit angry mob would be difficult task for the officials of district administration and Power Supply Company if they failed to halt unbearable power outages in the district.
