Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Shaikh met K-Electric Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Moonis Alvi who briefed him on the power breakdown.

The minister said people have faced severe problems due to the prolonged power breakdown. He said the power utility company should abide by the agreements made with the government.

He said the public representatives have to carry brunt of the complaints. The minister said load shedding during winter is beyond comprehension.  He directed to immediately restore electricity to residential and industrial areas of Karachi

The country plunged into darkness on Monday morning due to a fault in the national grid which Power Minister Khurram Dastgir blamed on a “voltage surge” in transmission lines.

The federal minister said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has formed a three-member inquiry committee which will be headed by Minister of State for Petroleum Musadik Malik.
