Frequent power outages: KE, SSGC won’t be allowed to punish Karachiites: CM

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Saturday presiding over a joint meeting of K-Electric (KE) and Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) here at the CM’s House has categorically told both the entities that due to their personal disputes he would not allow them to punish the people of this city.

The chief minister said that Karachi is, currently, facing increased electricity load shedding. The KE blames SSGCL for reduced gas supply, resulting in the decreased generation of electricity. The SSGCL denies and claims that 90mmcfd is being supplied against the old agreement of 10mmcfd signed in 1970s.
