ISLAMABAD: State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that the amount of electricity which was generated during the last four years had no parallel in the history of Pakistan.
Talking to the media outside the Accountability Court here on Monday, she said that in 2013, the generation of electricity was 9279 megawatts and the demand was 11,799 megawatts while in December 2017, power generation had increased to 16,477 megawatts as against the demand of 14,017 megawatts.
“On the one hand, the pledges made by former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and the PML-N to end darkness from the country were being fulfilled, and on the other, the person who abused the parliament and the state institutions was even today standing on the container using the same language,” she said.
Marriyum said that Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and the PML-N had made a pledge with the nation to end darkness which had been fulfilled with the announcement of zero load-shedding in the country. She said that when the PML-N was commissioning the power projects, one person was busy in the sit-in; he was attacking the parliament; he was abusing the state institutions and the constitution and was threatening to lock-down Islamabad.
She said that the one who ended darkness from the country and checked the burgeoning phenomenon of terrorism was appearing before the court after disqualification. She said that he along with his daughter and son-in-law was doing this to ensure the supremacy of law and the constitution. Marriyum said time would prove that the people voted for only those parties which delivered and fulfilled their promises.
