MQM announces a sit-in against K-Electric outside Parliament on Tuesday
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Muttahida Qauami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has announced a sit-in against K-Electric outside Parliament.
Expressing his views in the National Assembly on Thursday, Federal Minister for Energy Omer Ayub Khan said that the NEPRA is hearing the matter of K-Electric tomorrow. “The PPP should proceed with the matter and direct its representative not try to save them,” he said.
The minister said that deaths occur due to accumulation of water after the rain. “Who is responsible for the accumulation of water after the rain? The sanitation system has destroyed in Karachi,” he said.
He said that the government will provide electricity to Karachi through an alternate source of energy as well as the national grid.
Minister for Planning Asad Umar said that Karachi belongs to the PTI and they would resolve their problems.
He said that the impression is being given as if the PTI had privatized it. “K-Electric was privatized during the PML-Q tenure. “Pakistan is incomplete due to Karachi. We will resolve the loadshedding issue at the earliest,” he said.
PPP leader Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said that it is injustice to shift the burden on to previous governments. “Both ministers delivered speeches in response to the question raised by me. The answer to the question should be to-the-point,” he said.
