No load shedding after new projects start generating power: minister

MATIARI: Minister of State for Communication Ministry Abdul Hakeem Baloch said government has launched various projects and once these were completed, load shedding would end.  
Addressing a gathering in connection with Eid reunion and Jashan-e-Azadi he said the federal government had established the Gadani Corridor where 6,500 megawatts electricity would be generated. In addition to this, there are many other power projects being set up in Balochistan, Punjab and Sindh.
The issue of load shedding did not crop up in a day as it took many years since subsequent governments made no proper planning in this regard, he said.
The reason behind this issue was previous governments failed to start new projects to meet the growing needs of the country.
Due to the efforts made by the federal government, law and order situation in Karachi had improved, he said.
The government has launched different schemes including loans schemes for youth and fee of Master, M.Phil and Ph.D students were reimbursed for the first time in the history of the country and laptop computers were also distributed among them.
He said some parties including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf wanted to derail democracy in the country, but they would not succeed in their aim.
PML-N MPA Sindh Sorath Thebo said government would work for prosperity of Sindh people.
Education systems would be improved in the province and also jobs would be provided to the people of Sindh, she said.
Central Vice President PML-N Saleem Zia said in most of the Sindh province the roads were damaged and there was shortage of hospitals and schools for the poor.
He said the performance of PTI-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was zero and Imran Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri could not derail democracy in the country.
