Sindh too decides to demand control of electricity
31 December, 2013
KARACHI: Sindh government has decided to demand the Federal government to hand over control of the provincial power production and distribution companies.
The decision was taken during a meeting between former president Asif Ali Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Sunday night, said a handout issued on Monday.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's instruction, to hand over PESCO's control to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa regime, paved the way for Sindh government to take this decision. The handout said that Sindh government would immediately make a formal request in this regard.
Both leaders hoped that Federal government would reply positively, it added.
