    Angry protestors demonstrated against massive power outages at Lasbela Chowk on Friday.:pound::pound::pound:


    According to sources, the protestors blocked the road by burning tyres and placing bricks that disrupted traffic in the areas including Lasbela, Gulbahar, Gurumandir and Teen-Hati.

    Situation turned violent when police tried to disperse the agitated crowd and resorted to aerial firing. The angry mob hurled stones in response.

    Protesters said the area has been devoid of electricity for the past two weeks.

    On the other hand, Karachi Electric Supply Company Limited said the supply would only be resumed after residents pay their electricity bills.

    If states in India like TN do not buckle up we could have similar protests here also. 8-10 hours power cut in one of India's most industralised state.... crazy

    India has surplus electricity production.

    power cuts are due to



    State electricity board mismanagement

    illegal kundi connection

    meter setting

    faulty power lines

    wrong power consumption estimation by people of India.. while applying for electric meter


    list goes ..on
