So, these employees are getting free electricity equal to their salaries.
One low grade LESCO employee told me that he is getting 2,100 units free electricity per month.
He told that senior officers are getting 7,000 units and more free electricity per month.
The destructive load shedding which is being done in Pakistan has been frustrating for Pakistani people because it has affected their routine work and the most importantly has affected the businesses which are being processed in the country.
Electricity is considered to be one of the most crucial and basic necessity for running any business and industry and its short fall has dented the national economy.
I challenge that I can resolve electricity load-shedding issue in one year if I become minister or high official of ministry of power.
On February 06, 2010 there was eight hours of continuous load shedding.
Such shutdown takes place one day every week on the pretext of maintenance.
Local LESCO employees told that this shut down takes place from local Grid station. There numbers are provided on electricity bills as a joke.
Holiday on Saturday is loss for backward Pakistani nation since already government office procedures are dead slow. People of advanced countries cannot imagine to live in such circumstances for a single day.
I have never seen such a intense electricity load-shedding during my whole life.
