Pakistan govt is sorry for ongoing loadshedding trouble in the country: Ex-PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Islamabad: PML-N leader and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said Pakistan's government was 'sorry' for the ongoing electricity loadshedding trouble in the country.

He said the trouble will be fixed in the upcoming days.

In a press conference flanked by federal ministers, Abbasi was quoted as saying by Geo News the government needed time to rectify the power shortage as the country was producing 21,000 megawatts and there was a shortfall of 4,000 megawatts.

As a result of the shortfall, the authorities had to opt for a four-hour loadshedding across the country, the ex-prime minister said.

Abbasi said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif held a meeting today in this regard and decided to reduce loadshedding to 3.5 hours, adding that additional funds have been released to facilitate power providers.

Pakistan is battling the trouble of load shedding for the past couple of weeks.
