Latest Pakistan News / Islamabad News > Load Shedding in Pakistan – Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Monday said the country-wide load-shedding would start receding in next 48 hours, following directives of the president to double the supply of furnace oil to power generation companies.
Speaking to media representatives outside parliament house, he said Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif should avoid long march against power outages as it does not suit to a sitting chief minister.
He said he will be compelled to expose the corruption of Sharif brothers by installing big screens at famous crossings of Islamabad.
The brothers had left the country in time of crisis and were able to return due to the efforts of Benazir Bhutto, said the minister.
The government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is responsible for power crisis in the country as they had ended various power generation projects initiated by Benazir Bhutto after taking over in mid nineties, he noted.
Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and intelligence agencies have already been directed to take action against vagabonds, who try to create law and order situation in the country, he said.
Extortion in Karachi has been checked. A gang headed by Rehman Qureshi has been smashed and other gangsters would be arrested soon, said the interior minister.
To a question he said decision of the parliament regarding restoration of Nato supplies will be implemented. APP
