Prolonged load shedding in Karachi triggers water shortage
KARACHI (92 News) – Many areas of Karachi continue to face prolonged power outages during the Sehr and Iftar while triggering acute shortage of water in the city.
Grueling power shortages (load-shedding) in urban and rural areas of Karachi, plus the constant shortage of water, torment Karachi’s citizens through the summer.
The incompetence and mismanagement of K-Electric has turned the blessings of holy fasting month of Ramazan into inconvenience.
The prolonged power breakdowns in the city has created an acute water shortage in various parts of the city.
The citizens complained that despite the tall claims and steps taken by the government, the situation could not improve.
Earlier, Karachiites staged a protest demonstration against prolonged unannounced load shedding in the Shah Latif Town. The protesters blocked National Highway, connecting Quaidabad to Gharo and Thatta, near Cattle Colony commonly known as Bhains colony.
They raised slogans against K-Electric and demanded of the Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to take notice of the unannounced load shedding in the area.
