LAHORE: On Friday, Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) customers protested outside the business’ headquarters in opposition to excessive charges on electricity bills.
The protesters gathered in great numbers. They surrounded Lesco’s main entrance while protesting while carrying signs with slogans on them. No one was able to access or exit the corporate headquarters. Long lines of automobiles were seen on Queen’s Road in the meantime since the protesters had also stopped it.
They expressed their outrage at the daily rise in electricity prices and claimed that due to hyperinflation, they were unable to pay their bills.
The protestors said they would no longer pay excessive electricity bills as they opposed the trend of monthly increases in electricity costs.
You should be aware that the federal government announced the removal of fuel price adjustments up to 300 units. The finance minister, however, changed his earlier statement and clarified that the FPA up to 300 units of consumption had been delayed rather than cancelled and would instead be charged later.
Customers were upset by this announcement, and many chose to protest outside the LESCO headquarters. Customers were seen lining up outside the Lesco service center in the meanwhile to secure installments for their electricity bills.
