Industries to face 10 hours of load-shedding in Ramazan

ISLAMABAD: The government will cut power supply to industries by 10 hours a day in Ramazan as it looks to provide uninterrupted electricity to domestic consumers at Sehri and Iftar times, highlighting its failure in resolving the sector’s problems despite making it the topmost priority.

The government’s decision to divert electricity from factories during Ramazan also negates its claim of ending load-shedding in the country.

The decision has sent the influential textile lobby in a panic. Representatives rushed to Islamabad on Wednesday, asking the government to change its mind.
