Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) Wednesday decided to immediately dismiss the officers/officials and field staff found involved in facilitating electricity thieves by any means.
LESCO Chief Executive Officer Engineer Shahid Haider chaired a meeting here and prepared a comprehensive strategy for taking an effective and coordinated action against electricity thieves, besides issuing categorical directions to all Circle SEs (Superintending Engineers), Chief Law Officer and Circle Legal Council.
It has been decided in principle to immediately dismiss the officers and staff who facilitate electricity thieves. “We have one point agenda that power thieves will not be spared in any case even if the facilitators include LESCO employees. Cases will be registered against the officials involved in electricity theft, and LESCO officers and officials involved in the power theft facilitation will also be dismissed from their jobs,” he resolved.
