ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that the provision of electricity to the domestic and industrial consumers at reasonable rate is the foremost priority of government. Chairing a meeting in Islamabad on Monday, the prime minister said that the government wants to provide electricity at reasonable rates to the consumers as well as energy reforms and checking its losses are the foremost priorities of the government.

He also said that the government is providing relief to every possible level to the weaker segments of the society and consumers using up to three hundred units.
