    LAHORE: Hundreds of demonstrators armed with sticks staged a protest against load-shedding outside the Lahore Electric Supply Corporation (Lesco) office in the Batapur area of the city, Express News reported on Wednesday.
    According to reports, the protesters were facing around 16 hours of load-shedding on a daily basis.:thumb::thumb:

    The protest turned violent when demonstrators smashed the glass doors of the Lesco office and proceeded to break the windows of a car as well. Three of car’s passengers were injured as a result of the violence.

    A few policemen attempted to snatch the sticks from the protesters, however, they failed to disarm them. More cops were later called in to control the angry mob.
    Tyres were seen burning near the protesters, who were wielding sticks and chanting slogans.

    How can protests change the situation?

    One has to understand the reasons for the issue.

    I am sure that there will be much of stealing of power adding to the inefficiency and loss in power.

    Electricity suspended across Karachi, Hyderabad

    KARACHI: Electricity was suspended in almost all parts of Karachi, Hyderabad, Jamshoro and other districts of the southern Sindh province due to technical problems in the National Grid Line, DawnNews reported.


    Due to the electricity breakdown, several water board pumping stations had also stopped functioning as a result of which electricity supply to Dhabeji, Gharo, Nak and Pepri pumping stations was suspended. Consequently, water supply to different parts of Karachi was also interrupted.

    A thermal power station supply line in Jamshoro also caught fire due to which electricity was suspended to several parts of Sindh.
