Lengthy power failures and load sheddinghit several areas of Karachi on Wednesday, adding to the citizens’ grief amid rising temperatures.
Areas that were previously exempted from load-shedding have also been hit, including Tariq Bin Ziyad Housing Society, Shah Faisal Town, Karachi Admin Society, Saadi Town, and PECHS Block 2 which are facing outages since 9 am.
Power failure in North Nazimabad’s Block H was also reported at 8 am.
Meanwhile, citizens complained against load-shedding near Gol Market, Nazimabad, reciting slogans against K-Electric.
The protesters said that the power provider had cut off the area’s electricity for the last two days.

The duration of load-shedding has not augmented in the rest of the city, KE said.
The power service said that there was a power outage in some areas of North Nazimabad as restoration works were underway.
