APP April 19, 2022


PML-N leader Miftah Ismail on Monday said his government was fully capable of resolving the energy crisis under the leadership of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Replying to the statement of PTI leader Hammad Azhar, Ismail said people would see the difference between the performances of his party and the previous government.

"No doubt we are faced with severe economic challenges but the PML-N is determined to revive the country's economy," he added.

Miftah credited the previous PML-N government with installing modern inexpensive power plants, generating electricity from cheap coal and LNG and dealing with the energy crisis.

During the last tenure of the PML-N, he said, electricity lines were laid to improve the power transmission and distribution system.

The project was aimed at reducing losses in the distribution and transmission of the power sector, which was unfortunately shut down by the PTI government, he added.

He regretted that the “incompetent” government of the PTI had halted all energy projects that eventually caused losses to the power sector.

He expressed the confidence that the PML-N government would again start working on the improvement of the power supply and distribution system.
