IK Demands PM to Expose Culprits Behind Power Crisis

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday said that he has written to the interim Prime Minister Nasirul Mulk to expose the those who are the responsible for severe load-shedding and circular debts in the country.
In a series of tweets, Imran said the public has the right to know whether the promises and claims by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government of having ended load-shedding “were nothing but a pack of lies”.He also asked the interim PM to apprise the public the real facts behind the increasing circular debts and also expose those who had made wrong promises with the nation.
Former PM Abbasi, who was addressing a news conference about energy projects, had then gone on to assert that there had been no load-shedding in 90 per cent of the areas across the country from 6 PM to 4 AM.However, consistent power outages were reported in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Quetta, prompting the question as to where did the 10,000 MW of electricity disappear?
As night fell, multiple neighbourhoods in Karachi  including Kharadar, Liaquatabad, Orangi Town, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, and Gulistan-e-Johar’s Block 19 — faced power cuts, while a similar pattern of intermittent power outages was experienced in Quetta.
On the other hand, Rawalpindi faced an unbearable eight-hour-long duration of load-shedding.
