Small traders warn of electricity bill payment boycott in Karachi

The small traders of Karachi have warned to boycott payment of electricity bills if persisting load-shedding in the city is not stopped. A meeting of All Pakistan Organization of Small Traders and Cottage Industries (APSTCI), chaired by Karachi Chapter President Mehmood Hamid, expressed serious concern over prolonged load-shedding in the city market areas, saying that this has fully exposed the alleged incompetence of K-Electric. They said that continuous load-shedding has badly affected the economy of the city, adding that the small traders of Karachi would participate in an anti-KE protest on June 2. The meeting warned that the small traders would boycott paying electricity bills, as due to the electricity crisis, garment industry and tailor shops have been hit hard and it is not possible for them to meet Eid orders.
