Nawaz Sharif denies giving 6-month deadline to end power outages
“When did I say that I would end the energy crisis in 6 months? I never gave any such deadline,” Prime Minister Sharif said while addressing a gathering in Sheikhpura, where he laid the foundation of a new 1180 MW Bikhi power plant, Samma TV reported.
The prime minister said that he was committed to resolve the energy crisis by 2018.
“Setting power bills on fire doesn’t generate electricity. It requires a lot of hard work,” he said, adding that those who were standing on containers cannot comprehend it.
The prime minister lamented that a “historic” Kisan Package announced by his government was made controversial by some politicians. “Farmers must hold these politicians accountable for snatching their rights,” he added.
Without naming Imran Khan, the prime minister also called an end to politics of abuse.
