Protesters block Chitral-Dir road

TIMERGARA, Aug 4: The residents of Shehzadi village on Monday blocked Timergara-Chitral road at Ashari Gat for over two hours against Pesco’s failure to restore power supply to the village even after about three weeks of its suspension due to a faulty transformer. A large number of people, especially those returning from Chitral, remained stuck on teh road. Dozens of local residents led by former MPA Mohammad Zamin Khan took to the road and chanted slogans against the government and Pesco. Addressing the rally, the PPP leader Muhammad Zamin alleged that power supply to Shehzadi and the adjoining hamlets had been cut due to a faulty transformer. He said the residents had no power supply during the last days of Ramazan and Eid. “I personally contacted deputy commissioner, chief engineer Pesco and commissioner Malakand division in this regard but to no avail,” he said, adding the concerned authorities had no sympathy for poor masses.]]>
