GHALLANAI, 5 July: Despite strict orders of the prime minister about zero power load-shedding during Sehr and Iftar, the people of Mohmand Agency are facing the agony of power cuts during these timings amid extreme hot weather.
The people of Pandyali tehsil of Mohmand Agency told TNN that the duration of load-shedding has reached 16 hours in the holy month of Ramazan due to which they are facing many difficulties. They said water shortage has been created in the area due to excessive power cuts.

“Load-shedding has increased in Mohmand Agency with the advent of Ramazan due to which we are facing immense hardships. We demand the governor, FATA Secretariat and political administration to reduce power cuts till Eid,” a local resident told TNN.
