Sindh wants more gas supply to KE, separate circular debt settlement

KARACHI: In a rejoinder to a letter sent by federal Power Minister Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Saturday asked the Centre to delink the issue of additional supply of natural gas to K-Electric (KE) from the issue of payment of bills of various utilities and departments.

Any delay in easing the electricity crisis being faced by the people of Karachi could lead to a law and order situation in the city, he said.

In his letter, Mr Leghari had said the electricity crisis was a result of mismanagement, inefficiencies and commercial mishandling by KE.
