Energy crisis can be overcome by ending circular debt: Shahbaz


Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Monday said that the energy crisis could be overcome by ending circular debt.
During a meeting with a delegation of teachers at Minar-e-Pakistan camp office, the Chief Minister said that education sector has severely suffered due to massive power outages. He said that energy crisis was worse than terrorism in the country.
“Education system has been badly affected due to electricity load shedding and students were facing problems while appearing in their exams”, he said.
He said that Punjab’s economy and industries are being ruined by prevailing energy crisis but the federal government was paying no attention to it.
Shahbaz Sharif also blamed federal government’s flawed policies for the current crisis.


  1. Chaudhry Shujaat made an excellent suggestion. If provinces surrender their development budget to pay circular debt, it will ultimately help economies of all provinces much more than what they surrendered.
