FAISALABAD: After failure of talks with the Faisalabad Electric Supply Company (Fesco) regarding reduction in loadshedding duration, representatives of the Industry and Powerloom Owners Association have announced staging a sit-in at Chowk Abdullahpur on May 5.
The powerloom owners said that the millers and their workers would take part in the sit-in and vowed to continue their protest till the acceptance of their demands, which included maximum four-hour daily loadshedding.
