KESC protesters threaten city-wide blackout


Express May 14, 2010

KARACHI: The KESC joint action committee threatened the administration of a complete blackout in Karachi, if the 294 sacked employees of KESC are not reinstated on Friday.

The sacked employees held a protest demonstration in front of State Life Building in Karachi in this regard.

They warned to shut down all grid stations. The employees said they will also demand the government to reverse KESC's privitisation.

The Karachi Electric Supply Corporation dismissed the 294 employees on charges of misconduct and poor performance last month.

MR | 10 years ago | Reply 294 were terminated by KESC administration without any prior reason and notification. Efficiency and Disciplinary Rules (E&D) of KESC and Water Management are against Article 22-24 of IRA 2010 and thus Constitution of Pakistan. E&D rules are also sheer violation of privatization agreement.
Arif Naqvi | 10 years ago | Reply KESC has doing misconduct act with his workers/officers day by day. their basis problems of power generation is totally poor, and we are facing 6 to 8 hour loadshedding in 24 hours. our industries are mostly demaged. but they are terminating employees without assigning any reason/charge. KESC management not acceptable.
