CHITRAL: Up to 21,000 consumers in the Upper Chitral district on Friday set April 3 deadline for the government to ensure them uninterrupted power supply from the Golen Gol power project and an end to loadshedding. The Tehreek-e-Tahaffuze Haqooq-e-Awam Upper Chitral office-bearers set the deadline at a press conference in the Chitral Press Club.
Those who addressed the press conference included Mukhtar Ahmad Laal (president), Meer Ayoub (patron) and others. They said the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) and Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organisation (Pedo) had pushed the people of the Upper Chitral to darkness after taking the plea that Golen power house was short of water supply and 7 megawatts power transformer was yet to be installed. The elders pointed out that Upper Chitral was provided power supply from the Golen project last year.
