The Karachi Electric Supply Company has said that it will disconnect power supply to all those who fail to pay their bills on time.
They released this statement through their spokesperson apparently in response to the announcement made by over 16,000 industrialists in Karachi who said that they would not pay their bills until KESC solved the issue of load-shedding.
The KESC statement said that the company was aware of the problems faced by businessmen and had given them exemption from load-shedding for two years but with the drastic reduction in gas supply from SSGC they now had no choice.
All seven Industrial Associations of Karachi protested outside the Karachi press club against the 12-hour load shedding on Wednesday.
