Khurram Dastgir said that the current rainfall was seven times higher than average and caused damage to many grid stations across the province. He ordered HESCO and SEPCO officials to carry out the repair work. The power minister said that 54% of total consumers used under 200 units of electricity.

The government is trying to facilitate people with lower incomes, he added. He added that areas with good recoveries and lesser line losses did not have to suffer from load shedding. The expected demand was 26,000 MW but it went up to 30,000 MW due to higher temperatures, he added.

The power minister said that 1,980MW would be added to the grid by Thar Coal while the government was focused on solar power to reduce the production cost.

Dastgir added that the federal government was contemplating handing over HESCO and SEPCO to the Sindh government. Talking about the economic situation, he said that Miftah Ismail took charge in a very difficult situation. Party leaders can disagree with economic policies, which is what is happening in the PML-N, he added. The prime minister and Miftah Ismail were working very hard to improve the economic conditions, whose results would be evident by 2023, he added.
