KARACHI: The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) announced a reduction in power outages on Tuesday, reported Express 24/7. Loadshedding in industrial areas has come to a halt.

According to a KESC official, additional supplies of furnace oil have been utilized on the instruction of Federal Minister for Petroleum.

He said that areas that have been badly affected by loadshedding will not face any power cuts for the next two days.

Fueled by continued power outages, mayhem spread across the country, with infuriated demonstrators attacking buildings, policemen and passing vehicles for a second consecutive day.

The hardest hit by the rioting were Punjab’s urban centres – where there were scores injured and arrested.

Thats great news for Karachiettes and I wish that loadshedding may not be observed after couple of days just to set right an example that the institutions follow the instructions issued by their Ministers.
