KESC : Critical News Update

I got below email from KESC.

As you are all aware of the grave situation KESC has been facing for the past over 2 months. Hostile attacks on people and property and threats by union miscreants have crippled company’s operations.

Despite all odds KESC’s management, officers and workers have been relentlessly working day in and day out for the relief and comfort for the people of Karachi. However, we have now reached a unfortunate point where continuing field operations and repair and maintenance work, in the absence of law enforcement and protection of our people and other assets is no longer possible.

KESC has gone beyond the call of duty in the most dangerous of situations, but some of the recent incidents, especially those on July 20, 2011 suggest that our lives are gravely endangered, especially where law enforcement seems to be siding with the offender.

We would like to share our recent communication with the higher ups in the government regarding the current situation. This will give you a clear idea of the gravity of matters. Following are some of the main points covered in the letter for your knowledge;

Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) stand as silent spectators as KESC’s people and assets continue to get attacked by union miscreants
Summary of the gross violations for the past 2+ months;

The fifth attempt to gain access to central store at SITE, which contains critical material (PMTs, Cables, and Joints etc), culminated in a 12 hour long hostage situation while law enforcement assumed the role of spectators.
In view of the above and other incidents KESC has decided to discontinue its field operations and expose its people to a bunch of hooligans who are free to break the law at any time. Hence starting from today KESC has suspended all its operations till there is adequate protection for us which is our fundamental right.

On top of all this our Head office was attacked and was brought under siege and our people were made hostage. The load operations center was also disconnected today.

Our hearts go out to all our consumers who have suffered at large alongside us. We once again regret inconvenience and hope that the necessary authorities will assist us and take appropriate measures in restoring business as usual.
