LAHORE – The people living near Aiwan-e-Adl, Lower Mall, are facing consecutive power cuts of eight to 10 hours on daily basis because of the construction of flyover for Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS).

Frustrated with long electricity cuts in the month of Ramazan, residents of Sant Nagar near the Commissioner’s Office on Friday staged a protest demonstration and criticised the Punjab government for making their lives hell.

The protesters said they were facing electricity outages, water shortage and other problems because of the construction of the fly-over. The protesters warned that if the injustice continued, they would stage a protest demonstration in front of the Punjab Civil Secretariat.
