LAHORE The City remained in the grip of muggy weather on Thursday with massive loadshedding adding to the agony of heat-stricken Lahorites. Everone was witnessed sweating as high temperature and humidity turned the weather oppressive. Massive load shedding due to increase in demand and supply gap caused the people to come out on roads and lodge strong protests. The heat-stricken people thronged the Lahore Canal to beat the heat. On Thursday, maximum and minimum temperature in the City was recorded 36 degree Celsius and 28.5 C. Relative humidity in the morning was recorded 85 per cent which decreased to 66 per cent in the evening.

Meanwhile, dozens of WAPDA workers took out a procession from Bakhtiar Labour Hall against the load shedding and the price hiking. The workers led by the representatives of WAPDA Hydro Electric Central Labour Union demanded of the government to build up new Hydel and coal-fired Thermal Power Station in the public sector instead of rental power houses and recovery of lawful electricity dues of the WAPDA amounting Rs. 300 Billions outstanding against the Karachi Electric Supply Company and government and semi-government organizations. They also demanded for up-gradation of their pay scales.
