The demand center of PTI Sindh brings in another power supply company in Karachi
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Sindh ‘s leaders and MPAs announced a sit-in in Karachi against their electricity issues and demanded that the federal government bring in another electricity supply company in Karachi to end K-Electric ‘s monopoly. Opposition Leader in the Sindh Assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi, in a press conference outside the headquarters of K-Electric, said the company’s residents are tired of the metropolis. He added that the time has come for the town to be provided another electrical supply system.
“K-Electric has little ability to generate over 600 megawatts of energy from the national grid,” Naqvi said. He added that, until 2023, delivery would be rendered to certain firms via a tender. Since the start of the summer, the residents of Karachi have suffered from power outages.
While KE promised Sindh Governor Imran Ismail last month that unannounced load-shedding in the city will come to an end in 48 hours and a rise in power supply from the national grid from the normal supply of 650 megawatts (MW) to 800 MW, on Saturday the load-shedding of more than 12 hours continues unabated in region. Several community areas braved Saturday’s eight to 12-hour power outages. Many of the city’s neighborhoods remained without electricity throughout the early hours of the day.
Meanwhile, while speaking the CEO of KE Moonis Alvi laimed that there was currently no load shedding in the port city. The K-Electric CEO claimed while talking to host Shahzad Iqbal that the demand for electricity had dropped to 3,000MW which KE could easily generate.
“The problem starts as the load rises above our 3,200 MW generating power, and the output grows to 3,600 MW. There was also no load shedding in the town from March 20 to May 28 during the initial days of lockdown.
