The Lahore High Court on Friday sought a reply from the federal government on measures it was taking to control load shedding during the holy month of Ramadan.

Lahore High Court Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial heard the case. During the proceedings, the petitioner’s lawyer told the court that the government seemed helpless in tackling the electricity load shedding issue.

“Uniform load shedding isn’t being carried out in the country,” the lawyer said.

On this, Justice Bandial asked what measures had been taken to control load shedding during Ramadan. He said the government should take practical steps to deal with the issue and sought a reply from the federal government. Further proceedings were adjourned until July 11.
