The situation is particularly grave in Johi tehsil, Mehar tehsil and Khairpur Nathan Shah.

Speaking to the protestors, Asif Panhwer, Doctor Abdul Jabbar, Ghulam Abas Vighio and others said such prolonged power break­downs were a gross injustice with the people, mainly in this blessed month of Ramadan.

The speakers requested the SEPCO to curtail loadshedding hours at least during the daytime when people are fasting
