Pakistan is facing worst kind of energy crisis as people have to bear extremely long power cuts in this sizzling heat, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.
As most plain areas of Pakistan are in the grip of excruciating heatwave for the last three months, the country is also facing the worst kind of energy crisis.
On the other hand, the government announced on Monday that the load shedding of electricity would be reduced from to three and a half hours.
PML-N leaders including Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Khurram Dastgir, Marriyum Aurangzeb, and others told a presser yesterday that the load shedding of electricity would further be reduced in July as the production of coal plants was increased.
Abbasi said the loadshedding would be reduced from tomorrow to 3 ½ hours and from June 16, it would also be less than 3 hours.
He further stated that the government would reduce the load shedding to 1 ½ to 2 hours only from June 30, and would be able to further reduce it in July.
