Karachi: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi has decided to hold another sit-in against the Karachi Electric (KE) as the 15 days deadline given by it for acceptance of demands has already been expired.

JI Karachi chief Engr. Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman Thursday addressing a press conference, here at Idara Noor-e-Haq said their party would not hold a sit-in on May 25 at Sharah-e-Faisal.

He said earlier the JI had called off a sit-in outside the Governor House against KE, after Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair had assured the party that he will ensure provision of substantial relief to masses in connection with the KE’s policies; however, no relief was provided to the Karachiites.

Engr. Naeem announced that a sit-in will be held against the private power distribution company on May 24 at Nursery, Shahrah-e-Faisal. He said that the JI decided to continue its campaign against the company as instead of providing relief to consumers it has further increased load shedding in the city.
