LAHORE: Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) Chief Executive Mujahid Pervaiz on Wednesday took notice of Habib Jalib’s daughter’s hefty electricity bill amounting to Rs75,000.
“The LESCO chief executive has called for a transparent investigation and said that all necessary help will be provided to her [Tahira Habib Jalib],” a LESCO spokesperson said.
LESCO had sent legendary poet Habib Jalib’s daughter an electricity bill amounting to Rs75,000.
“I am extremely worried because I am being overcharged in my electricity bill for the last two months. Two months ago, I got a bill amounting to Rs63,253, out of which I paid Rs22,326 in installments but this month, despite a significant change in the weather, I received a bill of Rs31,267 and adding the previous one, I now have to pay Rs78,527,” Jalib had stated in a Facebook post on Monday.
She further wrote that she lives in a 2.5 marla house where electricity is not used freely. “Washing machine and iron are used when very necessary and I have left using AC as it is just sitting on the wall,” she had stated, adding that such a heavy bill was unjust.
