The report said for the first time in the history of Bahria Town loadshedding has also been witnessed, adding that some residents altercated with the staff over the power outages.
It is to mention here that Malik Riaz, during his press conference against the Supreme Court of Pakistan and its Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, had claimed that there was no concept of loadshedding in his Bahria Town.
An incharge of Bahria Town scheme in Lahore told the newspaper, though prices have not been decreased, number of clients had significantly decreased.
Malik Riaz is considered a defacto ruler of Pakistan, having links with top military general, government functionaries, media tycoons and politicians.
A senior journalist say it was Riaz who appointed Admiral (retd) Fasih Bolhari as National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman. He quizzed as to how Mr Bokhari would be able to investigate against Malik Riaz.
