Political, social parties demand cut in Naundero’s load shedding


LARKANA: Shehri Action Committee (SAC) held an emergency meeting here on Sunday against worst electricity load shedding raised from 8 to 10 hours within 24 hours. Over twenty political & non-political parties, social welfare, cultural, literary, trade, labour and business organizations took part in the meeting which included ruling PML-Nawaz, JUI-Fazal, JSQM, QAT, PTI, PPP-SB, JST, Sindhi Adabi Sangat, Ghousia Jamat, Tailor Masters Association, Mazdoor Ittehad and others.

The meeting continued for three hours in which detailed discussions were held. Many of the members and participants were of the view that Naundero has been badly hit by the rulers and has been always targeted on one pretext or the other ignoring the massive corruption in SEPCO.

Many of them said in the meeting that residents should not be step-motherly treated and politically victimized for faults of others. The meeting unanimously decided to observe complete shutter-down on Wednesday, July 29, hold grand protest demonstration and observe hunger strike at Allahwala roundabout here for one day.

The office-bearers of the SAC, including Ghulam Hyder Narejo, Manzoor Mangi, Engineer Javed Bhutto, Maulana Abdul Qudoos Panhwar, Sahab Khan Shaikh and others, issued ultimatum to the SEPCO authorities that if their just demand of reducing the load shedding from 10 to six hours daily as per the declared policy of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not accepted, then they will enlarge the scope of their protest. They also demanded that entire Naundero town be put on single feeder to ensure proper payments. PPI.
