      i doubt that. the “rapid growth” will slow down and it will be “incomplete” all thanks upcoming centralized censorship of internet just like saudi arabia.

    please note this huge fraud by lesco. I used 108 units of electricity in feb and lesco billed me around 2600 rs. My neighbours who used 138 units got around 1000 rs bill. I checked the bill in detail their is fuel adjustment charges of rs 1900. I was shocked. No other consumer in my neighbour received this fuel adjustment. Please beaware from this lesco fraud.. Please pro pakistani take notice on this and write a post on this.
