power shortage in lahore?

It’s been a few weeks since we are facing power issues in different areas of Lahore. Instead of 220V we are getting 180-190V and even 170V in some cases. It is probably not as serious as Karachi’s bijli ke masail but that means our AC’s are not working, you have computers restarting suddenly in middle of something really important because of power fluctuation (most irritating), tube lights are flickering and so many other problems.

I am not sure if its just a few areas of Lahore or its a major problem in entire city?

Looks like some bijli has been sent to Karachi by WAPDA :o).

    We, the residents of Johar Town are also victims of the similar snag. A/C’s aren’t working. I’ve lost my Microwave Oven last night due to the very same problem. My relatives at Tech Society & Wafaqi Colony are solving the same puzzle.
    I’ve heard that the LESCO people are doing it intentionally to save power. Can’t say anything if its true but know one thing, that is …W-P-A-D-A S-U-C-K-S….

    It’s not just Lahore – The whole subcontinent including New Delhi has serious power problems during the summers. Power Failures, power thefts and load shedding is what we are used to throught the day….
