Powerloom workers protest loadshedding in Faisalabad

FAISALABAD: Massive loadshedding brought life in Faisalabad to a standstill on Thursday. Hundreds of powerloom workers took to the streets protesting over continued power outages and blocked the city's main arteries.

According to sources, protestors surrounded local Fesco office, burnt tyres and chanted slogans against Fesco officials. A large contingent of police was deployed on the occasion. Agitated workers set a bakery on fire but two labourers were also injured when the bakery guard opened fire.

Labour leaders appealed their workers to remain calm but there was no end in sight to ongoing protests in the city.
