City: Slum Residents will hold protest demonstration against WAPDA


Islamabad: More than five hundred slum residents along-with their beds (Char-Pai) will hold protest against the attitude of WAPDA on Monday in front of National Press Club. Former federal minister J Salik has announced this in a press statement issued on Saturday.

J Salik said that Capital people living in sum houses are facing number of problems. He said that transformer of F.6/2 is out of order for last four days owing to which area residents are facing worst kind of load shedding. He said that more than five hundred slum residents along-with their beds (Char-Pai) will protest against the attitude of WAPDA.

The poor residents arranged 1 million rupees and handed over to WAPDA for transformer and wires and the issue was resolved temporarily. This single transformer was facilitating five hundred houses of slum with a single meter but unfortunately this transformer was inoperative on Thursday 17th July, 2014 in the morning time.

The residents paid at least 5 cruor rupees to WAPDA on the name of bills in the last 13 years. When the residents informed WAPDA about the happening, WAPDA told them to purchase new transformer and according to WAPDA the worth of a 200 KB transformer is 12 Lac but one transformer is not enough for the need of slum so they should purchase two transformers.
