KARACHI: Frequent load shedding in the campus of Karachi University (KU) has become common since last month, causing inconvenience to the faculty, students and residents of the campus.
The labs have been compelled to stop their work due to regular power outages which were causing damage to chemicals and expensive equipment of the labs. Research students are also suffering greatly and cannot maintain their workflow. KU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Muhammad Ajmal Khan, taking notice of the situation, wrote a letter to the K-Electric CEO.
The letter stated that KU is exempt from load shedding and requested the restoration of uninterrupted power supply to the university.
