Loadshedding in the city of Sheikhupura has disrupted the life of common people and businessmen totally. Citizens are so aggrieved at WAPDA that you would not believe it. The duration of loadshedding is at a killing 18-20 hours per day. We are living in ancient times. All businesses are closed. The unemployment rules the roost. The small businesses are suffering the most which is also tragic for the economy of the country. Burglars and thieves have swept numerous houses in the pitch dark that we have at night with out electricity. We need light in our lives. KHURRAM SHAHZAD, Sheikhupura, January 8.
