Minister for Power Omar Ayub Khan, while addressing the National Assembly session on Thursday, said the federal government has taken steps to improve the power supply in Karachi in order to address the problems of the people of the provincial capital.

The federal minister said we are providing additional one hundred megawatt of electricity to the K-Electric more than the contract agreement signed with it.

Omar Ayub said thirty thousand metric tons of furnace oil and 100 mmcfd gas have been provided to the company. He said we will provide more gas to the K-Electric which will help it generate two hundred megawatts of power.

The Minister however regretted the K-Electric did not upgrade its system over the years and it has constraints to take additional electricity from the national grid. He said the federal government will help K-Electric to build its capacity.

Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar lamented that the past governments did not pay attention to address the issue of load shedding in Karachi. He said the present government will implement in record time the project to improve power transmission and distribution system in Karachi.
