SADDA, 09 January: Tribesmen in Sadda bazaar and Alizai area of the Kurram agency on Monday staged separate protest demonstrations against prolonged discontinuation of electricity supply.

In order to make their protest more effective and attract widespread attention, the tribesmen in Alizai area beat drums and danced in traditional style during the protest demonstration.

They also blocked the main road for a long time to press the authorities listen to their grievances.

Traders in Sadda bazaar also took out a rally against suspension of power supply. They also chanted slogans against the relevant authorities for not restoring the electricity line.

The protesting tribesmen informed that power supply to the Central and Lower Kurram agency had been discontinued for the last six days and the relevant authorities were not bothered to restore the supply.

They said that due to the unavailability of electricity, not only their day-to-day life had been badly affected, it had adverse impact on their businesses.

Later, officials of the Tribal Areas Electricity Supply Company (Tesco) assured the protesters to restore the supply of electricity after which the protesters dispersed peacefully.
