LAHORE: Power generation in the country has reached upto 14,650 MW, however, complaints of power outages during Sehri, Iftari and Taraveeh timings could not be reduced.


In Multan, citizens took to streets against the unannounced load shedding while power outage problems in Lahore could also not be resolved.


The protestors are of the view that the government gave them ‘false hopes’. They said that the duration of loadshedding has increased during the holy month of Ramazan.


In Karachi, unannounced load shedding was carried out in various areas during the Sehri timings. The areas included Gulistan e Jauhar, North Nazimabad, North Karachi and Surjani Town.


Experts of energy affairs said that government’s claims could not reduce the power loadshedding, adding that there is a need to increase electricity generation.
