PESHAWAR -  Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Fazl Elahi has asked the authorities of FIA, Sui Gas and Wapda to carryout a campaign against gas and electricity thieves in PK-6 without harassing innocent consumers.

Addressing a press conference here at Peshawar Press Club on Friday, Elahi said that people of his constituency were prepared to install electricity meters and in this connection a meeting was also held with SDO concerned, but despite that Pesco officials were harassing consumers.

He added that those prepared for installation of meter shouldn’t be harassed through FIA officials.

Besides, he said that due to some defaulters the Sui gas authorities have cut off main gas supply line in Achini area. He also alleged that in their area illegal connections of gas were also given by the SNGPL officials, asking why the FIA officials did not take legal action against them.

Elahi said that the FIA officials were carrying out their activities against the locals to blame PTI government, whereas it failed to take stern action against the officials found involved in this illegal business. He also warned the SNGPL, Wapda and FIA authorities to mend their way; otherwise the locals will take to street and the authorities of departments concerned would be responsible for that.
