THE frequent power outages in Old Golimar Union Council (UC) 3 area has completely disrupted the lives of the residents. Multiple outages have become a daily phenomenon, with each episode lasting hours. Such erratic and intense loadshedding has affected work, studies and daily routines of the people, causing a great deal of inconvenience to one and all. People are unable to use electronic devices, and perform their daily tasks efficiently. Furthermore, the outages have also damaged electronic appliances, which is an additional financial burden.

The authorities concerned should take immediate action and resolve the issue. It is crucial to inform the residents about the cause of these frequent outages, and to ensure that they have access to a reliable and uninterrupted power supply.
