No load shedding on Christmas, directs PM


ISLAMABAD: On the special directions of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Power Division has issued orders to electricity distribution companies (DISCOs) to restrict power outages across the country on the eve of Christmas in order to enable Christian Pakistanis to celebrate their religious festival in comfort.

The DISCOs have also been directed to specially monitor and make necessary arrangements, including the provision of emergency generators, for the feeders providing electricity to churches in order to ensure uninterrupted power supply during the religious services.
