QUESTION OF THE DAY
The secretary to the muslim elders raised the question of power outages during their visit to the president after the Eid-Ul-Fitr prayers.
The president made it categorically clear that power outages will be history within two weeks. Yesterday the frequency of power outages and the duration when power was on was as never before.
It is important that a press release be issued by Nawec in collaboration with the office of the president to explain the cause. Meanwhile generators requiring expensive fuel are being relied on by some enterprises and essential users.
Unless the problem of electricity is addressed the country cannot have a manufacturing base and public services will also be the casualty. Immediate redress is needed.
