punjab electricity

On Monday, chief minister of Punjab, Hamza Shehbaz Sharif, declared that the province will give free electricity to household consumers who used up to 100 units of energy. 

He was speaking at a news conference when he remarked that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) administration imposed the scourge of power outages on the nation. He also stressed that the government’s priority is not to save politics but the country. 

The PML-N-led administration left Pakistan in 2018 with no load shedding, the leader claimed, adding that Pakistan has to get back on track right away. 

He said that the government has set aside Rs 100 billion for the electricity relief programme which will benefit nine million Punjab households.

Hamza Shehbaz claimed that ever since the PTI government was overthrown, the inexperienced PTI administration has been admitting that it was unable to lead the nation effectively.

Hamza emphasised that he would not mislead the residents of the province and that he would work hard to make Punjab prosperous. Shehbaz also questioned whether or not the populace concurred that the PML-N-led government left the country with an annual growth rate of more than 5% in 2018. 

Regarding the nation’s political and economic problems, he claimed that Pakistan had never seen a situation develop so rapidly, adding that people were tired of hearing thieving-related rally chants from the PTI. 

Although the current administration’s decisions are severe, they would put the nation back on the right path. “Our goal has been to put Pakistan back on the path of growth.” 

For this relief programme, the Punjab government has allocated Rs.100 billion in order to benefit nine million household, as per reports.
