The PESCO staff, despite collapse of so many towers, restored power supply in the affected areas through alternate sources.

These alternate sources, however, are not capable enough to bear heavy load and PESCO was compelled to carryout additional load-shedding on 11 KV Khushhal Khan Khattak,Tubewell, Akora Khattak-1, 2 and other slinked feeders. The Pesco management has sought cooperation of people.

Later on, the PESCO chief visited Nowshera City grid station and inspected rehabilitation work on affected feeders and hailed the staff's performance for completing the work on urgent basis.

The cooperation of people was sought till completion of the remaining work. Engr Youafzai ensured completion of restoration work shortly.
