Karachi

April 12, 2019

Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Thursday directed K-Electric (KE) officials to ensure uninterrupted power supply to consumers in Karachi, saying that the government would no more tolerate instances of unannounced load-shedding in the city.

The governor gave direction to this effect as he met at Governor House a joint delegation of KE and Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) officials.

Ismail directed the KE and SSGC officials to resolve at the earliest their pending issues as being two important public utilities of the city, their lingering disputes caused sufferings to the consumers and businesses of Karachi.

He was of the view that economic and business activities in the city had been hit hard owing to the disputes between the two public utilities. He asked the SSGC and KE to resolve their disputes in the larger public interest.

The governor emphasised that consumers in Karachi should be supplied uninterrupted gas supply and electricity to their households during the upcoming month of Ramazan so that people could fast without any problem during summer.

Economic activities in the city could be accelerated manifold if the industries in Karachi were provided uninterrupted electricity and gas, Ismail said. He added that the present government had the utmost resolve to address basic issues of people and provide all utility services to them.
