Unscheduled outages protested

TANK: The elders of Bhittani tribe deplored the unscheduled power loadshedding in their villages, demanding the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) to take note of the situation.

The tribesmen assembled at Umar Ada sub-town at a locally organised plate farm namely Bhittani Welfare Society, complained that they were faced with acute water shortage.

The  residents of  Umar Ada , Maghzai, Kiri Marwati, Niamatkhel,  Janaki, Kiri Jandar and Waruki  villages  diverted the attention  of the  high-ups of the  towards what they stated they were  treated being the  third-class citizens of the society as  none had bothered to  provide them with basic amenities.  

The speakers including Malik Hussain Bhittani, Sameen Khan, Gulbehram, Momin Khan, Jabbar Khan, Muhammad Amin and others  complained that on-going unscheduled power outage caused stand-still to their lives.

The dwellers of these remote vicinities of the district were forced to fetch water for their needs from nearby water-ponds as almost 20 hours long outage was being carried out by the Pesco local authorities.

 They added that consumption of the polluted and unhygienic water was causing water-bond diseases among the masses rapidly.They blamed that as a result of contract with the locals, Pesco officials every month extort thousands in the name of recovery from these unfortunate villages.

But the issue of low voltage and power fluctuation was never being addressed by the local management of Pesco.The protesters asked the district management to intervene the situation by directing Pesco management to install another electricity feeder to reduce the already overburdened Umar Adda feeder.
