PESCO’s bifurcation challenged

PESHAWAR: Employees of the power authority on Tuesday filed a petition in the Peshawar High Court, challenging the federal government’s decision to bifurcate the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) to set up a separate Hazara Electric Supply Company (Hesco).

In its petition, filed through senior lawyer Abdul Latif Afridi, the APWHWU argued that there was no technical or economical reason for bifurcating Pesco save political.
