After several days of shortage, national power generation exceeded daily demand on Monday, with total output reaching 21,500 megawatts, Energy Minister Khurrum Dastagir Khan told the National Assembly.
Responding to warning notices from Aliya Kamran and others regarding unexpected power outages in Balochistan, the minister said the government believed in providing power to all provinces without any discrimination.
“On Monday, 21,500 megawatts of electricity were produced, which is more than our demand,” the minister said. “There is no load shedding on the starts with 80% recovery and less loss,” he said, according to Radio Pakistan. He assured that maximum electricity would be supplied to Balochistan.
The Minister asked lawmakers to report to the neighborhoods concerned if they notice any unforeseen load shedding, specifying that instructions had already been given to distribution companies so that the supply of electricity is not interrupted for technical reasons.
Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told the House that the decision on the leader of the opposition and the new chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) would be taken within days. He added that the tradition of declaring political opponents traitors should be stopped.
