PML-N government leaves behind power crisis

LAHORE: Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif during his last days in power had warned public to deal with power cuts from June 1 as his party’s term in the government has come to an end.

His warning proved tough for masses in Punjab, especially in urban centers where scheduled and unscheduled power outages had already been increased.

Shehbaz claimed that his party had fulfilled its promise to end power outages forever. “Today, almost zero loadshedding is being carried out in the province,” he said.
Reacting to the Punjab former chief minister’s warning and unscheduled loadshedding, citizens condemned rulers for their failure to keep their promises. However, some of them praised the outgoing government for reducing the duration of power outages.
