Power woes: Top officials grilled by PM

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday again grilled the top team of Water and Power Ministry for its sustained failure to meet the targets given in four consecutive meetings of Cabinet Committee on Energy (CCoE).
Sources said the Ministry of Water and Power complained that the Finance Ministry has yet to release the Tariff Differential Subsidy (TDS) despite a decision of the CCoE prompting the Finance Ministry’s officials to maintain that since the Water and Power Ministry has not submitted any such claim so far, then how can the Finance Ministry be held responsible?
