GUJRANWALA: Frustrated with the increase in power outages, residents of several cities took to the streets in protest, Geo News reported.

Angry protestors set ablaze Six GEPCO offices and a petrol station in Gujranwala while five people including a DSP and SHO were hurt during clashes between protestors and police.

Protests continue on GT road and several areas of Gujranwala have been without power for the last 14 hours. Several people have been injured as protests have turned violent throughout the city.

A police check post was also attacked following the arrest of several protestors. During firing by the police two people were injured.

Protests are also taking place in Lahore for the second consecutive day. The city is experiencing 14-18 hours of loadshedding and this has also led to a water shortage.

Loadshedding has also taken its toll on residents of Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, Bahawalpur and other cities of southern Punjab.

The situation is similar in Balochistan where several cities are without power for up to 18 hours. Over in interior Sindh and Karachi residents are living without electricity for at least 10 hours. Residents of the metropolis are left with no other option but to protest as the KESC claims that not enough electricity is being supplied from the national grid.

In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA at least 14 hours of loadshedding is taking place leading to water shortage in several areas.
