Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen has requested the Supreme Court of Pakistan to take suo motu notice of unjustifiable increase in the tariff of Karachi Electric and order the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) not to grant any increase on any pretext mentioned by the K-Electric authorities.

“On the one hand consumers have been under the heavy burden of overbilling despite hours long power outages and on the other K-Electric make lame excuses to seek increase in the tariff from time to time,” said Syed Raza Naqvi deputy secretary general of the MWM Karachi chapter in his reaction to the latest rise in the K-Electric tariff.
He said soaring cost of electricity to the domestic consumers and small traders was tantamount to economic assassination of the masses.
He asked the Supreme Court to order the K-Electric to exempt the congregations of azadari (Shia mourning rituals to commemorate the martyrs of Karbala) and celebrations on birth anniversary of Hazrat Mohammad, the last apostle of God and Prophet of Islam from the load-shedding (scheduled outage). He also demanded that there must be an end to undeclared load-shedding in all over Karachi.
Naqvi said that billions of rupees were extorted by the consumers under overbilling tactics by the K-Electric officials. He urged that there must a fair mechanism for billing and K-Electric must not resort to overbilling in any case. He demanded return of the money that K-Electric extorted by overbilling.
