Islamabad- Chairman PTI, Imran Khan has asked why the people are suffering from unprecedented load shedding when the government has paid Rs 500 billion to IPPs by collecting money through loans and printing currency notes.

This load shedding targets the poor and middle classes while the elites have generators. But the poor laborer or agricultural worker and their families will be subject to more torture, he added.
