Traders protest load shedding

Traders on Monday demonstrated against hours-long load shedding in front of district nazim office.

They later blocked Mardan-Nowshera Road for one hour while shouting against WAPDA, provincial government and district authorities. Markazi Tanzeem Tajiran President Hajji Muhammad Aslam, Carpenter Association President Iftikhar Khan and General Secretary Syed Muhammad led the demonstrators.

They said traders had been suffering heavy losses due to high inflation coupled with load shedding lasting for 16 hours a day.
