Major power breakdown plunges half of Lahore into darkness

LAHORE :- A massive power breakdown on Wednesday night hit different parts of Lahore, depriving half of City’s population of electricity for hours.
Technical fault at 220kv grid station at the Bund Road plunged half of Lahore into darkness. The power outage made the hot and humid conditions difficult to bear for the residents.
The power outage affected several areas including Sabzazar, Sanda, Sant Nagar, Iqbal Town, Wahdat Road, Muslim Town, RA Bazaar, Walton and Ghazi Road.
Several hours after the power shutdown, a National Transmission and Distribution Company (NTDC) spokesperson claimed that power supply to Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) has been restored.
