BAHAWALPUR: Residents of Bahawalpur on Tuesday complained about hours of unannounced electricity load-shedding in Ramazan. “We are braving power cuts even during traveeh prayers,” Muhammad Imran, a citizen, said. “Wapda has made things difficult for us during the holy month.” Muhammad Kamran said up to 12 hours of load-shedding was underway in the city. “The power supply is not consistent. Incessant outages have been causing damage to electric appliances,” he said. “The weather is hot and humid and often there is no electricity during prayer timings,” Farhan Shah, another citizen, said. People have demanded that the government take immediate steps to mitigate their sufferings.
