K-Electric solely responsible for power outages in Karachi: ministers

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif has reiterated that there will be no load shedding during Sehri, iftar and Taraveeh timings.

“K-Electric is responsible for shortage of electricity in Karachi while Ministry of Water and Power is supplying 650MW electricity to Karachi.”

In a statement in Islamabad, he said 93% urban and 86% rural areas are being provided uninterrupted electricity.

He said situation is returning to normal and loadshedding is being controlled gradually.

The federal complaint cell is also operating round the clock for ratification of technical faults.

Meanwhile, Minister for State Abid Sher Ali has also blamed the K-Electric for power crisis in Karachi. The minister went on to say that the power utility had even badly failed in discharging its responsibilities.
