Lahore High Court summoned Chairman Pepco and Minister of Water and Power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf on April 29 for 6 percent hike in the power tariff on the pretext of fuel surcharge.
LHC Justice Umar Ata Bandial heard the case. The petition was filed by one Imtiaz Rasheed Qureshi, whose counsel Barrister Farooq Hassan contended the case.
Farooq argued that increase in the power tariff despite the case being sub judice in the court is equal to contempt of court.
