Hundreds vent rage over outages

KASUR – Hundreds of villagers vented their rage over unannounced loadshedding, suspending traffic for half an hour here Tuesday.
Over 600 villagers blocked Kasur-Raiwind Road and burned tyres to protest against 15-hour loadshedding and chanted slogans against the Wapda and government.
The protesters said that loadshedding in this humid weather was adding to their woes while the authorities were dragging feet over the matter.
The villagers staged the demonstration in front of Raja Jang Customers Service Centre. However, they dispersed peacefully after the assurance by local police and Lesco officials.
