Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar said that there would not be any announced loadshedding from Sunday in Karachi.
“The federal government has increased supply of oil and gas for K-Electric,” said Asad Umar at a press conference in Islamabad, pointing out that National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) would decide who was responsible for continuous load shedding in Karachi.
“We have privatized k-Electric not Karachi,” he added.
He further stated that 550 MW of electricity would be provided to Karachi before summer 2021.
The industrialists and SSGC’s representatives were also invited to attend the meeting. It may be mentioned that meeting was called on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
