Scores of residents of Sadhar village and adjacent areas on Sunday staged a demonstration on Sadhar Bypass to protest against unscheduled electricity load-shedding.


They blocked the Faisalabad-Jhang Road for traffic for several hours and chanted slogans against Faisalabad Electric Supply Company. They said that up to 20 hours a day of power cuts had made their lives miserable.

One of the protesters said many people had become unemployed as factories in the area had closed down.
