A delegation from the area said that some of the lights have gone out of order and the concerned officials have failed to replace them.
“A streetlight or roadside lights in our Town is not working for the past many months, yet nobody from the KMC has visited the area to replace it. In absence of streetlights we are not able to go to Masjid in evening and morning,” said Malikzada Umar Farooq a social worker.
