Karachi. 4.3.2016: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MNAs Mir Munawwar Ali Talpur, Ejaz Hussain Jakhrani and Sardar Rafiq Ahmed Jamali have strongly condemned the NEPRA for restricting implementation of Rs.4 per unit cut of electric tariff for the electricity consumers in Karachi. The NEPRA is constantly depriving the electricity consumers in Karachi of the benefit they deserve.
In a statement issued from the PPP Media Cell Sindh, the PPP MNAs said that the federal government has been treating the people of Karachi as step-son. The cut in electricity tariff that the NEPRA did many times was not for the people of Karachi, which is nothing but sheer tyranny.
They said that Karachi being the economic hub and revenue engine of the country adds major part of revenue to the national exchequer but the federal government has never considered the people of Karachi for obtaining the reduction in prices of all variety of goods that a common man needs for a living.
They also condemned the federal government for price-hike of common utilities of common man’s needs at the Utility Stores where the prices of grains, pulses, dry milk and edible oil have been increased greatly. This skyrocketing price-hike is unaffordable for the poor people.
They said that the federal government is deliberately ignoring this crisis of skyrocketing prices of common ma’s goods and the decline in POL prices in international markets was also not passed on to the poor people.
They demand the federal government to treat the people of Sindh especially Karachi as equal citizens of the country and pass on the benefits of decline in POL prices and in electricity tariff.
