Load Shedding in Punjab

Protests also took a violent turn in Faisalabad, when residents furious over continuous load shedding for twenty hours burnt tyres, blocked the roads and voiced slogans against the authorities.


Police resorted to baton charge and heavy tear gas shelling to disperse the protestors; however this sparked a clash as protestors in retaliation pelted stones.


The excessive use of force by the police turned the peaceful demonstration into an angry mob that looted a beverages truck as well.


Protests also took place in several other cities of Punjab including Faisalabad. The electricity shortfall in the country has exceeded seven thousand mega watts.
