Power shortage self-created, no shortage of gas: Sindh CM
KARACHI (92 News) – Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said on Friday that the recent tussle between K-Electric and Sui Southern Gas Company has only resulted in Karachi’s citizens receiving the short end of the stick.
Speaking at the 15th My Karachi Expo opening ceremony, Shah said that if the federal government cannot provide electricity to Karachi’s citizens, KE should hand over the charge to the provincial government. “The shortage of electricity is self-created and there is no shortage of gas.”
The chief minister said that the current tussle between KE and SSGC has created problems for the citizens. He also pointed fingers towards Karachi resident Miftah Ismail, the prime minister’s adviser on finance.
He also said that recent construction work underway in the city has created problems for citizens; however, the Sindh government is working towards making sure the work is completed in due course.
