Blame game over power crisis continues as 250 die of heatwave in Karachi

KARACHI: As death toll following unprecedented heat wave in Karachi claimed at least 250 lives, State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali has blamed Pakistan People’s Party in the city for electricity crisis and crippling power cuts in the city, ARY News reported.

“PPP entered into wrong contract with the K-Electric that is rebounding of citizens in shape of crippling power cuts.”

Speaking to media in Islamabad, Ali said authorities were not resorting to extra load-shedding in the country.

“It is requested that Altaf Hussain be brought in the country to streamline K-Electric,” he said in a veiled criticism to Karachi-based parties protesting against prolonged power outages.

He informed that Rs 2.5 billion had been given to Sindh government to resolve water problems.
