People in Narowal blocked a national highway by setting fire to tyres as a protest against the per unit increase in power tariff, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.
The motorists had to face a great deal of inconvenience due to the traffic jams caused by the protest.
The protesters also raised slogans against the government and demanded that the increase in electricity prices be withdrawn.
They were carrying electricity bills in their hands.
“Sometimes, petrol becomes expensive and sometimes electricity. It has become difficult to feed bread to children,” they said.
“The government has made a move to crush the poor,” they added.
