After many days of shortages, national energy production topped daily demand on Monday, with total generation reaching 21,500 megawatts, according to Minister of Power Khurrum Dastagir Khan.
In response to Aliya Kamran and others’ complaints over unannounced power outages in Balochistan, the minister stated that the administration believes in supplying electricity to all provinces without prejudice.
“On Monday, we produced 21,500 megawatts of electricity, which is greater than our need,” stated the minister. According to Radio Pakistan, he stated, “There is zero load-shedding on feeders with 80% recovery and reduced losses.” He promised that Balochistan would receive the maximum amount of electricity.
The minister requested parliamentarians to notify the appropriate authorities if they discover any unexpected load-shedding, noting that distribution companies had already been told that energy supply should not be stopped for technical reasons.
Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told lawmakers that a decision on the opposition leader and the new chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) would be made in the coming days. He went on to say that the practice of labelling political opponents as traitors should be abandoned.
