Statesman Report
ISLAMABAD: PML-N's spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb and PPP's Sherry Rehman on Wednesday censured the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) and the government for “looting” people.
PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb, criticising the government, said that sending power bills for 36-37 days every month for the past eight months is equivalent to “robbing people in broad daylight”.
“The people are being robbed in every possible way,” said Aurangzeb.
Continuing to slam the government, Aurangzeb said that everything has gone to shambles “under Imran sahab's rule”.
The PML-N spokesperson added that similar incidents have been reported for gas bills before.
PPP leader Sherry Rehman also criticised how the power companies are “looting people of hundreds of millions of rupees” by bending the rules.
She said that both NEPRA and the federal government are “complicit” in plundering people.
Sherry further condemned the government and NEPRA for “being silent” on the matter. She said that NEPRA has “failed to abide by its own rules and regulations”.
“Power companies are robbing the poor of even the subsidies provided to them,” she lamented.
