Imran wants caretaker PM to take nation into confidence over power crisis


ISLAMABAD: After completion of five years of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Friday wrote to interim Prime Minister Justice (r) Nasirul Mulk to take the people into confidence by informing them about the actual situation of power crisis and chronic circular debt.

In a series of tweets, the PTI chief said the people would like to know the veracity of former premier Nawaz Sharif’s statement that his party left with surplus electricity in the system and that any power failures would be the caretaker government’s responsibility.

He said: “As the country confronts spiralling power and water crises alongside a heatwave, I have written a letter to the caretaker PM to take the nation into confidence and inform them of the correct picture of the acute power crisis and status of the Rs 500bn circular debt left by the PML-N govt.”

In another tweet, he said: “The long-suffering public has a right know whether the promises and claims by the PML-N govt of having ended load-shedding were nothing but a pack of lies. People would also like to know the veracity of Sharif’s statement that any power failures now would be the caretaker govt’s fault.”

“I have pointed out to CT [caretaker] PM that it is his government’s responsibility to take the nation into confidence and inform them who is responsible for this sorry state of affairs in power sector; and is there any semblance of ‘good governance’ that the PML-N govt boasted about ad nauseam?”
