Unscheduled power cuts add to summer woes

Dear Editor,
I am a resident of Talab Tillo. With summer at its scorching worst, residents of Talab Tillo and the nearby areas are being hassled by power outages for the past 3 days.
The residents remain clueless over the agony they have to encounter despite paying exorbitant electricity bills. The peak-summer hovering over 40-degree Celsius mark is only making matters worse for them.
Residents of Talab Tillo are at the receiving end as unscheduled power cuts totalling up to 6 to 8 hours a day in these areas have become a routine. For owners of cyber cafes, parlours, music stores and electronic shops, frequent power cuts have adversely affected their businesses.
