MQM MNAs CONDEMN YET ANOTHER HIKE IN POWER TARIFF


MQM MNAs CONDEMN YET ANOTHER HIKE IN POWER TARIFF
 Posted on: 5/22/2012

KARACHI: 22ND MAY 2012
MQM MNAs have strongly condemned the increase in power tariff by Rs 2.38 per unit and called for immediate withdrawal as it would compound problems of the general public. They said that in spite of increasing power charges people were facing long power outages that had disrupted normal life. Industries were being closed and shifted to other countries because of prolonged load-shedding and power outages. It would be highly illogical to increase the power charges in the current situation.
The MNAs said that instead of increasing power charges, serious efforts should be made to resolve the power crisis in the country. They demanded of President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, and Federal Minister for Water and Power Mr Naveed Qamar to take back the increase immediately. They also called for serious steps to give relief to the public by lowering power charges.
