K-Electric, KWSB behind power crisis in Karachi, says ministry

ISLAMABAD: Instead of finding a solution to the deepening power crisis in Karachi, blame game has intensified as the federal government has held Sindh administration and K-Electric responsible and has asked the province to address the issue.

Minister for Power Division Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari, in a letter sent to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Friday, blamed K-Electric and one of the provincial departments, which had defaulted on energy payments, for triggering the electricity crisis in Karachi.
