Writ petition against load shedding
Kathmandu Jan 27-A writ petition was filed at the Supreme Court Thursday seeking termination of the load shedding arrangement made by Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA).
The petition filed by advocate Bhupendra Prasad Pokhrel seeks an interim order asking NEA to revoke load shedding.
The Prime Minister's Office and the Cabinet, Ministry of Water Resources and NEA have been named defendants in the case.
The petition claims that load shedding was been enforced against clause 19 of NEA Act 2049 and clause 23 of NEA Act 2041.
NEA is enforcing load shedding 17 hours a week across the country, citing shortage of electricity.
