Power cuts will be reduced in days to come, Dastgir tells Sindh CM

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and Federal Minister for Power Khurram Dastgir on Thursday discussed the issue of prolonged loadshedding in rural areas of the province.

The meeting was held at the Chief Minister’s House. During the meeting, the chief minister briefed the power minister on load shedding and inflated electricity bills. “On the one hand, there are prolonged power outages and on the other hand inflated bills are being issued to consumers,” he said and urged the federal minister to issue necessary directives to HESCO and SEPCO authorities in this respect.

The federal minister assured the chief minister that both the issues would be resolved on a priority basis. “In the first phase, the duration of load shedding would be reduced and in the second phase it would be eliminated but it would take some time,” Dastgir told Shah.

Dastagir added that he would ask HESCO and SEPCO authorities not to issue inflated bills to consumers. Loadshedding in urban areas also came under discussion during the meeting. The federal minister told the chief minister that he would issue necessary directives to the K-Electric administration. The chief minister thanked the federal minister for visiting him and presented him a memento, Sindhi cap and ajrak.
