I am a resident of Murghazar Housing Society C Block linked with Awan Town Multan Road Lahore. WAPDA has made the lives of people living in our locality so miserable that we are having loadshedding of 17 hours or more every day now. In the morning, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., there is no light or water. After a break every alternate hour, the schedule of loadshedding continues till 8:00 p.m. at night and, then, again from 8:00 p.m. to 1;00 am, we go back to life in the dark ages. Can anyone in government help us? -ANIQA GHAFFAR, Lahore, via e-mail, August 1.
