Minister for Power Khurrum Dastagir Khan has said that there is a zero loadshedding on feeders with 80 per cent recovery and less losses.
Responding to a calling attention notice, moved by MNA Aliya Kamran and others regarding unannounced power loadshedding in Balochistan, Khurrum Dastagir Khan informed the National Assembly on Monday, the minister said the government believes in providing electricity to all the provinces without any discrimination. He expressed the commitment to provide maximum electricity to Balochistan.
He said that 21,500MW of electricity was produced on Monday, which is more than the demand. He also urged members of the house to convey the concerned quarters if they find any unscheduled loadshedding. He said directions have already been given to the distribution companies that electricity should not be disrupted on technical grounds.
He, however, said the government is facing resources’ constraints in provision of uninterrupted electricity due to mismanagement of the previous government.
Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has announced to investigate the undue favour and facilitation extended to Bahria Town at the behest of former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his cronies.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, he said around 150 million pounds had been remitted to Pakistan as a fine by the National Crown Agency of the United Kingdom. The minister said, “We will also take up this matter with the British authorities.”
The minister said the decision about the leader of the opposition and the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee will be decided in a couple of days. He said the tradition to declare political opponents as traitors should be stopped.
