Khawaja Asif

WEB DESK – The federal minister of water and power Khawaja Muhammad Asif has maintained that there is no unannounced loadshedding anywhere in the country as total power shortfall is not more than 2,500 MW.

Leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was speaking at the occasion of signing the agreement to start 50MW wind energy generation project in Sindh.

Khawaja said that there was only six to eight hours of loadshedding in urban areas of Pakistan and no unscheduled power outages.

Federal minister also maintained that government had funds to start as much as 1,000MW wind energy projects.

Earlier, The state minister of water and power Abid Sher Ali 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.

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.
