Due to political pressure and wrong commendation, LESCO officers’ postings and transfers are nothing but a joke to the department itself.
Sounds Bad? Hell Yeah!
Officers are being transferred within 2 hours of their 1st transfer in a day. Top management of the power division is the reason behind these transfers and treating the department like a sandwich.

Officers are also very much worried due to these unusual postings and transfers. They are calling it a musical chair game. No one is listening to them.
An example is, on 11th April, “Umer Bilal was appointed as operations manager of the south circle. After he took the charge, he got the call/letter within an hour to leave the charge.
Another example is XEN Mughalpura “Aqeel Zafar” who was posted as operations manager of the south circle. On 17th April 2023, he was asked to leave his position.
On the very next day, he was again appointed as manager of the south circle.
Sudden movement and political transfers are becoming a sensitive issue for the LESCO department as well as consumers.
Let’s hope that this pressure will be reduced by the power division and they let the officer do their job.
