CHITRAL, 10 July: The people of Chitral on Thursday staged a protest demonstration against Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) over excessive power load-shedding.

The protesters blocked the Chitral-Peshawar road for all kinds of traffic and chanted slogans against WAPDA authorities. They said despite paying full bills, the people of Chitral face up to 18 hours load-shedding which is unjust. They said low power voltage has also made their lives miserable.

The protesters also offered the Zuhr prayer under the open sky as a mark of agitation. They threatened to spread their protest if load-shedding was not reduced in Chitral.
