Protest against unscheduled power outages in Swabi


SWABI: A large number of people held a protest demonstration against unscheduled and prolonged power outages in Swabi on Friday.

According to details, perturbed over long hours of unannounced load-shedding, hundreds of citizens belonging to different areas of Swabi staged a protest by blocking Swabi-Mardan Road.

The traffic remained suspended for hours due to the protest and long queues of vehicles formed on both sides of the road; due to which the commuters had to suffer.

After dialogue with the administration and assurances that their demands will be fulfilled, the protestors dispersed peacefully.

The protestors warned that they would take to streets again if steps were not taken to lessen the duration of load-shedding and to end unscheduled power outages.
