Murad takes up prolonged load shedding with fed power minister

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in his meeting with Federal Minister for Power Khurram Dastagir took up the prolonged load shedding in the rural areas of the province.

The meeting between the two was held here at CM House on Thursday.

The chief minister said that there were two serious issues in the rural areas of the province. “On the one hand there was power outage for over 12 hours in a day and on the other inflate bills are issued to the people,” he said and urged the federal minister to issue necessary directives to the Hesco and Sepco authorities to resolve them.

The federal minister assured the chief minister that both the issues would be resolved on priority basis. In the first phase the duration of load shedding would be reduced and in the second it would be eliminated but it would take a little time.

Mr Khurram Dastagir also said that he would talk to the Hesco and Sepco authorities to make proper meter reading and issue the power bills accordingly.

The chief minister also took up issues of load shedding in the city with the visiting minister. The federal minister told the chief minister that he was holding a meeting with the KE administration and would issue them necessary directives for improvement of their services.

The chief minister thanked the federal minister for visiting him at CM House and presented him his memento, Sindhi cap and ajrak to his guest.
