Appeal to the Chief Justice of Pakistan -letter
 

Respected Sir,
According to the recent survey conducted by Transparency International, Power producing companies of Pakistan have crossed all the limits of corruption, mismanagement and incompetence and have been ranked one of the top five corrupt institutions of Pakistan.

 

 These corrupt power companies have not only made the lives of the people miserable by unscheduled load shedding but also by increasing the prices of electricity units for domestic and commercial consumers.

 

The recent example is that commercial consumers were charged Rs. 7.89 per unit by PESCO during the month of September but all of a sudden Rs. 4 were added to per unit for commercial and domestic consumers in the electricity consumers bills of the current month.

 

This decision was sudden and surprising because on 25th October, NEPRA had decided reduction of 36 Paisa per unit for all consumers. The increases in electricity charges has added further to the hardships of the people and exposed the failure of the Govt. it also reveals the fact that the present Govt doesn’t honour the promises which are being made with the people and has distorted its own image in the eyes of the people.

May the Chief Justice of Pakistan take Suo Moto notice of the recent un-announced price hike to save the poor people of Pakistan from the cruel clutches of NEPRA (National Electricity Power Regulatory Authority)? --Bashir Hussain Azad, Chitral, 28 Oct 10.
