Karachi. 29.8.2016: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPAs Sajid Jokhio, Javed Nagori and Shaheena Shair Ali have slammed federal government over ignoring Karachi Electric for its atrocities on the consumers of electricity in Karachi, minting money from the consumers through highly inflated and bogus monthly electric bills and failure in upgrading distribution due to which citizens are a constant victim of electrocution. More sadly, neither the federal government nor any other national institution is listening to the complaints from the consumers against K-Electric.
they said during light rain a day earlier, at least 6 citizens had died due to electrocution in Karachi for which the federal government is equally responsible because of patronising the K-electric for its all unlawful acts from extorting money from the consumers through bogus billing, and investing no money for the up-gradation of distribution system. Even the K-Electric had removed all copper lining and replaced aluminum lining, which easily breaks into pieces.
They lamented on the role of the federal government for failing to catch the K-Electric for compensation to the aggrieved families.
They demanded of the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take Suo Moto notice on K-Electric for minting money from consumers, causing degradation of distribution system and for its sole responsibility of deaths of citizens due to electrocution.
