No load­shed­ding dur­ing Se­har, If­tar, Tar­aveeh: Abid Sher

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

State Min­is­ter for Wa­ter and Power Chaud­hary Abid Sher Ali on Sun­day said there would be no load­shed­ding dur­ing Se­har, If­tar and Tar­aveeh in Ramzanul Mubarak.

Talk­ing to the me­dia af­ter ad­dress­ing a pub­lic gath­er­ing at Ghau­sia Park here, he said the PML-N gov­ern­ment was ex­e­cut­ing en­ergy gen­er­a­tion projects on war- foot­ings which would surely help elim­i­nate load­ing­shed­ding dur­ing the next year.

He said 8000- 10000 me­gawatt elec­tric­ity would be added in the sys­tem up to 2018, adding that, "We are striv­ing hard to over­come load­shed­ding com­pletely by March next." Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion, Abid Sher Ali said the Prime Min­is­ter went abroad for car­diac surgery and he would re­turn soon and restart his ser­vices for wel­fare and bet­ter­ment of the masses.

"The PML- N has made Pak­istan in­vin­ci­ble by mak­ing atomic power and now we are striv­ing to trans­form it into eco­nomic power", he said.

Re­spond­ing to an­other query, the min­is­ter said peo­ple had re­jected politics of ag­i­ta­tion in­tro­duced by PTI chief Im­ran Khan. Im­ran Khan failed to do any­thing worth- men­tion­ing in Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa, he added.
