PPP condemns 30pc hike in electricity tariff
Staff ReporterKarachi—Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPAs have condemned NEPRA for 30 percent hike in electricity tariff of residential consumers of electricity on federal government’s orders on dictation of IMF. NEPRA had on one hand condemned the Karachi Electric for being a major cause of 1300 deaths amid extreme heat wave, issued show cause notice to the KE and the NEPRA’s counsel had apprised the higher court that NEPRA might cancel KE’s license.
However, the increase in tariff of residential consumers by 30 percent has exposed all tall claims of the NEPRA, which were all lies and meant to deceive the judiciary and the consumers.
