The minister also advised changing the office hours from 9 am to 5 pm to 8 am to 4 pm to take advantage of the sunlight.

CM Sindh said that although they had been advised to close restaurants at 10 o’clock, they may change their minds after speaking with the restaurant union.

The CM recommended that he and the prime minister interact with all stakeholders individually and come to an agreement to enforce energy-saving policies and lessen the country’s economic pressures.
