Pakistan Wapda Hydroelectric Central Labour Union members staged a sit-in at Wapda House and took out a rally against the said appointments, while activists of Pesco/Tesco officers association boycotted work to show solidarity with the union.

Shouting slogans against the government, protestors demanded early withdrawal of the chief executives’ appointment to Faisalabad, Multan and Islamabad Discos. They said the appointments had created unrest among Discos employees.
