Bilawal slams Power Ministry over outages

PPP leader says smaller Sindh towns paying even street light bills

KARACHI – Pakistan People’s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto strongly condemned what he termed as the ruthless victimisation of people of Sindh at the hands of Ministry of Water & Power while millions suffer severe scorching heat-wave without electricity in the province.

In a press statement on Tuesday, Bilawal said that the policy to churn out extraordinary inflated bills to consumers and then using force and muscle power of federal agencies to fleece the public was anti-people thus won’t be allowed. He said the way the province, which provides major portion of energy needs, was being treated was outrageous.

He said that the treatment to Sindh people was tantamount to further deepen the sense of deprivation among smaller provinces. “There have been instances where the smaller towns of Sindh were sent street lights bills much bigger than the cities like Lahore and Faisalabad in the past,” he pointed out.

He made it clear that his party won’t tolerate victimisation of the people of Sindh province and asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to stop his ministers from nefarious designs in maligning the smaller provinces and their masses.
