Mulk takes stock of power situation

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nasir-ul-Mulk has expressed dissatisfaction over the figures of power generation and distribution presented to him. He has directed the high-ups of the Power Division to submit him detailed figures.

He gave these directions at a maiden meeting with the Power Division officials at a time when the shortfall has touched 10,000 MW which accounts for massive load-shedding across Pakistan.

Secretary Power division, Yousuf Naseem Khokhar, MD PEPCO, Musaddiq Ahmed Khan, MD NTDC, Zafar Abbas and other senior officials on Tuesday gave a briefing to the Prime Minister on overall outlook of power sector and also stated that lack of cooperation by the provinces in recovery of billed amount was also one of the reasons for financial problems of power sector.
