Pakistan PM moves to fix power crisis
Ashraf Saturday directed the petroleum ministry to ensure 28,000 tonnes of gas to power plants daily to add 1,200 MW of electricity to the national grid.
He was chairing a meeting at his official residence, Geo TV reported.
The meeting also decided to provide additional gas to the Karachi Electricity Supply Corporation (KESC) to produce 300 MW more and reduce its dependance on the national grid.
The country's total installed power generating capacity is 16,000 MW and the shortfall is in the region of 6,000 MW.
The water level of the Yamuna river has crossed the danger mark in Delhi, increasing the threat of flood. Locals are gearing to face the crisis as the rains are at least twice as heavy as usual in northwest and central parts of India.
