KARACHI: Several areas of Karachi continued to face prolonged outages on Saturday as K-Electric’s Bin Qasim power plant could not be restored even after the passage of two days.
K-Electric was earlier at odds with Sui Southern Gas Company for non-provision of gas. But now when the availability is there, K-Electric’s plants have undergone a technical fault. While naming power interruption a result of load management, K-Electric is troubling the Karachiites with a load shedding of 10-12 hours.
According to the spokesperson, a temporary extension of 1-3 hours has been made in the duration of power outages in the metropolis. In the exempted areas, a 3-hour load-shedding schedule has been issued.
K-Electric authorities have comforted the people saying that the availability of electricity will be back to normal in next two to three days.
