ISLAMABAD: India offered cheap electricity to Pakistan on Wednesday to help overcome the lingering load-shedding problem.

While briefing the media after the Public Accounts Committtee meeting in Islamabad, Secretary of Commerce Zafar Mahmood disclosed that Pakistan is seriously considering the Indian offer.

He further said that the issue of power shortage would also come under discussion in the meeting between the commerce secretaries of India and Pakistan on April 27 and April 28.

Pakistan still has several reservations to give India the most favoured nation status.

rk singh | 10 years ago | Reply @ Shakir Lakhani SOUR GRAPES. India is galloping away fast. In another 20 years it can even overtake china economically. Of course, there are problems, but they are small. J&K people has several referendums before and they all refused to be part of Pakistan. They prefered to stay with India. I dont see them waling over to Pakistan in near future.
