While lauding Punjab government’s decision to provide free electricity to lifeline consumers who use up to 100 units in a month, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif reiterated his government stance that since day one, it is his government’s top most priority to protect the downtrodden segment of society from the harsh economic conditions, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The prime minister tweeted on Tuesday: “Protecting the poorest from the effects of difficult economic conditions has been our top priority since day one. It’s a very welcome step on the part of Punjab chief minister to announce free supply of electricity to the households using up to 100 units per month. Will provide more facilities, in sha'Allah.”

Indian Punjab beats Pakistani Punjab in free electricity 

The Indian Punjab has beaten up the Pakistani Punjab in free electricity supply, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

Pakistan Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz on Monday announced free electricity for the domestic power users of 100 units and free solar panels to the deserving people in the province.

Though it’s a laudable endeavor on the part of Hamza-led government but our neighbouring country’s Punjab province chief minister has taken the lead by announcing free units for people consuming up to 300 units. 

On July 1, Indian Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced that his government was fulfilling a "guarantee" made to people of the state as from Friday each household would be getting 300 units of free electricity every month.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government had earlier announced giving 300 units of free power to every household from July 1.

“Previous governments used to make promises during elections...five years would pass by the time promises were fulfilled but our government has set a new example in Punjab's history. Today we are going to fulfill another guarantee given to Punjabis. From today, each family in Punjab will get 300 units of free electricity per month," Mr Mann said in a tweet on July 1.
