MQM Co-ordination Committee expresses concerns on long electricity breakdowns in Karachi


MQM Co-ordination Committee expresses concerns on long electricity breakdowns in Karachi
 Posted on: 7/12/2015
MQM Co-ordination Committee has strongly condemned the three long breakdowns on electricity in Karachi during one week. Expressing its concerns, the Co-ordination Committee said that the long breakdowns in the largest industrial city in the country indicated incompetence and criminal negligence of K-Electric.
The Co-ordination Committee said that people are facing the double agony of load-shedding and large-scale breakdowns in the hot weather during the holy month of Ramzan. Instead of taking steps for eliminating load-shedding the problems of citizens have increased manifold because of blackouts.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the people of Karachi contribute more than 70 percent revenue in the national exchequer, and the profit of K-Electric is increasing, but both the federal and provincial governments are not serious in resolving their fundamental issues.
The Co-ordination Committee said apparently the federal and provincial governments are serious in attending to the basic issues of the people of Karachi relating to the supply of electricity, water and gas.
The Co-ordination Committee said that frequent electricity breakdowns have badly affected the normal life of the people, and their anger is spilling on the streets of Karachi.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the Chief Justice of Supreme Court should take suo moto notice of the electricity situation in Karachi as the federal, and provincial governments have failed in their duty to resolve the issue.
The Co-ordination Committee urged on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to take serious notice of power breakdowns in Karachi and take concrete steps for resolving the issue.
