19 June, 2024 20:00

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Ali Amin Gandapur has taken the KP loadshedding matter in his own hand as he raided a grid station and forcibly restore the power supply.

While speaking to Geo News, he termed the move as his “very own” outage plan.

He made a surprise visit at the Dera Ismail Khan (DI Khan) grid station to oversee the restoration of electricity.

On the occasion, CM Gandapur fixed the loadshedding duration at 12 hours.

“No area will face loadshedding beyond 12 hours,” he said and directed other provincial assembly members to visit grid stations in their respective areas as well.

Earlier, in his presses, Gandapur picked apart the federal government for withholding approximately Rs1,600 billion in dues and revenues owed to the provincial government.

“The federal government said it needs some time to review the power system and asked for our support,” he said. “However, the timeline given to the Centre has expired. I tried to contact Federal Minister for Energy (Power Division) Awais Leghari but received no response.”

“This means you (the people) and we are free,” he stated, urging everyone to follow his policy and spread it. “No one should damage any Wapda asset because it is our asset, made with our tax money.”
