Appeal to the Chief Justice of Pakistan
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
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.
