Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, a former prime minister and current leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), has declared that the loadshedding of the country’s electrical grid will be shortened to 3.5 hours from Tuesday (tomorrow).
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, stated that the country’s demand for power has surpassed 25,000MW as he was speaking at a press conference in Islamabad among other federal ministers.
He brought up the fact that the capacity of the power plant to generate electricity was 17,000MW before the current government took over, but it has since been boosted to more than 21,000MW.
“Today we are producing 21,000MW and there is still a lack of 4,000MW,” he said, adding that as a result, the authorities were forced to choose for a four-hour loadshedding over the entire country. “Today we are producing 21,000MW and there is still a shortfall of 4,000MW,” he said.
The previous leader of the country has stated that there will be fewer than three and a half hours of power outages across the nation beginning on Tuesday, and that number will drop to three hours beginning on June 16. He continued by saying, “By the 30th of June, the duration will be less than two hours.”
Shahid Khaqan made the observation that the coalition administration was not interested in making excuses but rather was concentrated on finding solutions to the problems that were afflicting the nation.

He also voiced his disapproval of the government that was in power at the time, the PTI, by stating that the country did not receive even one kilowatt of additional power under that administration. Khaqan continued by saying, “There is a long story of neglect.”
The previous premier, in response to an inquiry, stated that the government did not get any tax revenue from the sale of gasoline and that it was being sold at the rate at which it was purchased. He continued by saying, “We’re hopeful that the rates in international markets will decrease, and that this will have an impact on the local market as well.”
