HAFIZ­ABAD—The ac­tivists of Sunni Tehrik and De­fence of Pak­istan Coun­cil to­day took out sep­a­rate ral­lies to protest against the drone at­tack in Balochis­tan by the US im­pe­ri­al­ists. They raised slo­gans against the United States for in­ter­fer­ing in the ge­o­graph­i­cal fron­tiers of Pak­istan and pa­tro­n­is­ing India to ruin the peace in the re­gion.

They strongly con­demned the ne­far­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties of anti-State and anti-Is­lam forces to harm the coun­try. They also con­demned the gov­ern­ment for its si­lence and called upon the gov­ern­ment to re­view its re­la­tion with the US. They fur­ther said that the whole na­tion is be­hind the armed forces to meet any chal­lenge.

Mean­while, lo­cal ci­ti­zens have strongly crit­i­cised the gov­ern­ment and WAPDA for its fail­ure to pro­vide un­in­ter­rupted power sup­ply to them dur­ing the holy month of Ra­mazan.

Be­side, load­shed­ding timings, the elec­tric­ity played hide and seek with the peo­ple on Thurs­day and Fri­day. Even the power sup­ply re­mained dis­rupted at Traveeh time and dur­ing the Juma con­gre­ga­tion. The Kha­teebs of al­most all the prin­ci­pal mosques have lashed out at the GEPCO chief and the Min­is­ter for Wa­ter and Power for their fail­ure to pro­vide some sort of re­lief to the fast­ing peo­ple.

The in­hab­i­tants of Alipur Road, Kash­mir Na­gar and Ali Town ex­pe­ri­enced day-long power dis­rup­tion and they have taken out protest rally to protest against the anti-Mus­lim pol­icy of the GEPCO.
