KARACHI: Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has cut off power supply to Sindh Law Minister Ayaz Soomro’s house due to non-payment of bills mounting for the fourth month, Express news reported on Saturday.
According to the KESC spokesperson, the minister owes Rs170,000 to the power company.
Soomro was due to address a press conference in Larkana today.
Earlier, in a statement released by KESC, the power supply company said that it will disconnect power supply to all those who fail to pay their bills on time.
They released this statement through their spokesperson apparently in response to the announcement made by over 16,000 industrialists in Karachi who said that they would not pay their bills until KESC solved the issue of load-shedding.
