ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said the country is facing load-shedding as PTI government neither purchased fuel in time nor repaired power plants.
In a tweet today (Monday), he said costly power generation through inefficient plants is costing the people one hundred billion rupees per month. He said we are fixing the problem.
The Prime Minister recalled that the government of Nawaz Sharif had ended the worst load shedding in five years.
Mian Nawaz Sharif’s govt ended the worst load-shedding in 5 years. PTI govt neither purchased fuel in time nor repaired power plants. Hence the current load-shedding. Costly power generation through inefficient plants is costing the people Rs.100 billion/month. We are fixing it.

On April 24, Shehbaz Sharif had directed to take emergency measures to significantly reduce load-shedding by May as he had blamed the policies of the Imran Khan government for power outages.
PM Shehbaz had said he would not sit back till the problem was resolved. He had directed to make every possible effort to provide relief to the people from the pain caused by the criminal negligence of the previous government.
