Karachi suffers 10-12 hour load-shedding

F.P. Report

KARACHI: Several areas of Karachi continued to face prolonged outages on Saturday as K-Electric’s Bin Qasim power plant could not be restored even after the passage of two days.

K-Electric was earlier at odds with Sui Southern Gas Company for non-provision of gas. But now when the availability is there, K-Electric’s plants have undergone a technical fault.

While naming the power interruption as a result of load management, K-Electric is troubling the Karachiites with a loadshedding of 10-12 hours.

According to the spokesperson, a temporary extension of 1-3 hours has been made in the duration of power outges in the metropolis. In the exempted areas, a 3-hour loadshedding schedule has been issued. K-Electric authorities have comforted the people saying that the availability of electricity will be back to normal in next two to three days.
