Awami Party Sukkur District President Waqar Ali Soomro said that SDO of sub-division three Jamil Channa, lineman Ahmed Ali Siddiqui has heated up the bribery market in sub-division three, Tir Chowk, Dadu Chowk in different areas of the sub-division. Electricity is being stolen in exchange for bribes in various areas including Workshop Road, Barrage Colony, Wari Tar and additional units and deduction bills are being sent by imposing their burden on poor consumers which is gross injustice to cut off power to consumers on complaints. Including harassment and bribe of eight to ten thousand rupees to be demanded for the correctness of the bill The protestors said that due to unannounced load shedding in the area, the residents of the area are disturbed in the scorching heat. Investigate the corruption in Channa and immediately remove the staff in the corruption and appoint an honest officer so that the abuse of the consumers can be rectified.
