    KE always trying to find any such kind of issue like rain and storm in order to save their electricity, as they have no sufficient power supply, I want to place my complain toward the higher authorities that please save the Karachities from this monopoly of KE, they always keeps eye on their profit only and they never do work in people interest and they want that people will remain deprive from their fundamental needs of electricity, just little drops of rain had made their grid station faulty if Karachi will get high amount of rainfall then what will happen to their system, its totally fake and drama of KE that their transmitter or grid station became faulty after little drops of rain, and if their opinion is right then they should need to upgrade their transmission system because Karachi is the commercial hub of Pakistan and it comes in the top list of world famous metropolitan cities

    No signal of power breakdown since morning of Monday but after 10 p.m its broke down. A little time before the neighborhood was off the power, that signaled us that something is gonna happen. Well done KE. spent $ 2 millions to bailed your Naqvi,but not a single rupee to save Karachi from this calamity.
