TANK, April 29: The national electric company, WAPDA, and residents of Umar Adda area in Tank district have signed an agreement under which a close electricity feeder would be restarted and people will pay 500 rupees monthly bill each.

The agreement was signed during a jirga of Bhittani tribe at the office of executive engineer, WAPDA.

The district development committee chairman, Mr Muhammad Ahmad, told TNN that residents were facing a host of problems due to closure of Umar Adda feeder and that the problems would mount in the summer season.
