Outages return with start of Ramazan

KASUR - Unscheduled and prolonged outages have returned with the start of Ramazan mocking the tall claims of rulers regarding no loadshedding in Ramazan.

People belonging to all walks of life, especially labourers have been greatly affected by the outages. Talking to The Nation, people of different localities said that the government had failed to overcome power crisis. They lamented that power remained suspended for 18 hours in rural areas. "It creates scarcity of water and people at mosques do not find water for ablution," they regretted, and adding that people offer Taraveeh prayers without light at mosques. They flayed the government's false claims to overcome the power crisis, and demanding that the authorities should ensure interrupted supply of electricity during iftar and sehri timings.
