‘Pay the bills’ for reduced loadshedding in summers, warned the minister


WEB DESK – The state minister of water and power Abid Sher Ali has vowed to take every penny of outstanding dues in electricity bills from all departments and individual consumers, which might relief the Pakistani citizens in coming summer season from hours long loadshedding.

Ali held the press conference in Multan on Tuesday where he once again warned the defaulters of all Distribution Companies (DISCOs) to pay outstanding dues within 15 days or their electricity connections would be terminated.

Abid Sher Ali told the media that Federal Lodges – residence of member of parliaments in Islamabad – was still a defaulter of Rs 175 million to WAPDA.

Earlier this month, Abid Sher Ali held another press conference in Peshawar where he revealed that at least 15 feeders of Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO) were not paying the electricity bills.

One town in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Warsak-II, was not paying a single penny to PESCO for outstanding dues of electricity bills, he told the media in Peshawar.
