PPP anti-load-shedding protest is unjustified, uncalled: PML-N

LAHORE: Spokesman Punjab Government Malik Ahmed Khan on Thursday termed PPP's protest campaign against load-shedding uncalled and unjustified.

If PPP leadership adhered to employ underhand tactics to misguide people, the PML-N had the right to protest in Karachi too, he added.

Talking to media-persons at the office of DGPR, he said, the Peoples Party had resorted to protest under the garb of load-shedding to cover its bad governance in Sindh and failure in removing garbage from city of lights.

He said, entire nation knew Mr Asif Ali Zardari as Mr 10 per cent, adding people on the other hand named Shehbaz Sharif Khadim-e-Aala.

He said the government was striving hard to eliminate load-shedding from the country. Had Imran Khan not wasted eight months valuable time, thousands of megawatts electricity would have been added to national system by the government, and load-shedding would have been ended in the country, he mentioned.

However, he said, 5,000 mega watts electricity would be added to national grid on completion of on-going power projects.

On a question, the Spokesman said, a Rs 10 billion notice had already been served on PTI Chairman for his baseless claim of offering Rs 10 billion bribe to him. (APP)
