Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif called Secretary Water and Power, Mr. Younus Dagha to the PM House this morning and sought briefing from him on load shedding situation in the country.

The Prime Minister was informed that there has been an unprecedented surge in power demand on the first day of Ramazan which necessitated some forced load shedding, and the situation could only be brought under control if the demand decreases.

The Prime Minister directed that all steps must be taken on urgent basis to address the situation so that the suffering of the people can be mitigated at the earliest.
