Ministry of Water and Power has claimed that it has ended unscheduled power cuts across the country but scheduled loadshedding would continue to bridge the gape between production and consumption. In a statement on Monday, Water and Power Ministry spokesperson said loadshedding issue is due to shortage of electricity but some elements were politicizing it for personal and party interests. He said that protest is basic right of masses but no one would be allowed to damage the public property in the name of protest. The spokesman said that unscheduled electricity loadshedding had been ended, however to balance the power production gap routine power cut would persist. He said that the power shortfall has reached 3,410 as the country is producing 14,191MW electricity while demand is 17,601MW, adding that urban and rural areas of the country are facing 8 and 12 hours power cut.
