LODHRAN-Though the City-2 Feeder project was completed two months ago, it has not started functioning yet leaving the consumers in the lurch.

Lodhran City’s 3 feeders are used to face the problem of tripping due to overloading and shortage of voltage. Last year, Mepco authorities started working on two new feeders City-2 and Colony-2.

City’s political and social communities and Pakistan People’s Party Shaheed Bhutto’s District President Sheikh Tahiruddin said three feeders of Lodhran City have more load than their capacity and these feeders trip again and again while voltage dropping problem also persists. In the situation, the rural area should be put on the City-2 feeder and if happens, a protest will be held, they said.

When contacted, XEN Abdul Rauf Sanghera said that the map for the new feeders has been approved by the Construction and Planning Department.
