Hyderabad Electric Supply Corporation (HESCO) has disconnected around 300 illegal connections. They had already disconnected more than 500 connections. Owing to which Hyderabad citizens are facing 8 hours load shedding/
HESCO is not taking action against influential people, political parties, MNAs and MPAs. That’s why they are doing unannounced load shedding, unfair billing, adding unreal arrears. It is a fact that last year many people died due to heat stroke in Karachi, Hyderabad and other cities but it looks HESCO has not learnt from that incident.
HESCO announced load shedding plan of 6 hours for urban areas and 10 hours for rural areas. But now load shedding schedule for urban areas is 8 to 10 hours and rural areas is 12 to 15 hours.
Residents of Latifabad, Qasimabad, Preet Abad and Ilyas Abad are facing overbilling issues from last few years.
