CHITRAL: Member National Assembly (MNA) Maulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali said power consumers in Upper Chitral were suffering to a dispute between Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) and Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organisation (Pedo) for many years.
Speaking at a press conference here, he said the people of Upper Chitral were facing prolonged power suspension even after the completion of the 108 megawatt power house in Golen. This is only because there is an ongoing issue between the two government entities over financial issues.
He said Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister should take notice of the monetary dispute between Pesco and Pedo in order to provide relief to the people.
He also complained that the people were compelled to get the faulty power transformers repaired on their own.
The Maulana said the young men and women from across Chitral had to travel to Chakdara in Lower Dir district to appear in tests for government jobs as the government failed to open a centre for them in Chitral.
