NAUDERO: Hundreds of villagers from Saidudero, Pitafi, Sameja, Suhrab Machi and other areas staged a demonstration protesting the prevalent electricity load-shedding. They blocked the main Sukkur-Larkana Road on Saidudero bus stop, burnt tyres and shouted slogans against power outages on the pretext of electricity bill defaults. Moreover, they refused to end the blockage of roads until electricity gets restored in more than 90 villages that get their power supply from Izzat Ji Wandh and Garhi Khuda Bux feeders.
