Our staff Reporter OKARA - Violent protest broke out in the city against 'fuel adjustment charges in electricity bills that have virtually tripled the bills. The people of village 30/2-R and adjoining village held a large protest on Thursday in front of the Lesco office against the imposition of the 'fuel adjustment surcharge, and threatened to torch the office if the government did not reverse the move. The protesters blocked GT Road for almost an hour and raised slogans against the Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda). As per detail, the Lahore Electric Supply Company (Lesco) has been recovering fuel adjustment charges from its consumers for two months and doing so in one go, making life difficult for the already hard-pressed consumers and stoking up violence. The protesters while talking to newsmen said that in Pakistan corrupt governments keep the masses overburdened so that they could not see beyond their problems. Another protester said the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) and the Lahore Electric Supply Company (Lesco) were illegally receiving the fuel adjustment surcharge for the last several months. They announced that if the bills were not corrected, they would block all roads of Okara.
