PESHAWAR – Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) has opposed proposed amendments to National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) and Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) acts, it is learnt.

According to Geo News, federal government had sought suggestions from provinces to bring changes in the acts, and the KP government has prepared its reply.

It is important to mention here that these proposed amendments are part of the agenda of Council of Common Interest (CCI).

Sources said that the federal government wanted to bring the Nepra and Ogra under the command of ministries in order to regularise the departments, adding that this would result in the internal matters of electricity producer companies deteriorating further.
