KARACHI - The City observed another scorching day of summer as the temperature shots up to 42 Celsius. Reports from weather forecast said that the existing heat spell could persist for another few days. The atmosphere will also remain partly cloudy, according to Meteorological office. On the other hand, the City faces hours long unscheduled loadshedding. The continuous state of affairs in KESC has made lives of the citizens pitiful. In this hot and sizzling weather, while holy month of Ramazan is also going on, the condition of power supply has largely affected the fasting public. Even though, the government has assured that loadshedding will not occur during the Sahr and Iftar time, the situation prevails the same way as it was before Ramazan. "We are facing this persistent loadshedding even in Sahr and Iftar. We want the government to resolve this condition, though we have no high hopes," said a citizen. The loadshedding even occurs during Namaz-e-Taravee. "This is an utter disappointed situation," remarked an old citizen. The KESC is not producing electricity to its full capacity. The company is determined to not operate on furnace oil. Despite the fact that the oil prices have declined internationally, the company has not started its production through furnace oil. "It is not our responsibility to provide relief to the citizens, we have to look after the company's interests too," said the official from the company ruthlessly.  It is to be recalled here that the KESC is defaulter to WAPDA, PSO and SSGC. The Bin Qasim power plant is generating 835MWs of electricity. Unit 1 produces 175, unit-2 180, unit-3 70, unit-4 80, unit-5 185 and unit-6 145MWs of electricity. Its real production remains 1400MWs while IPPs are not functioning. The City faced shortage of 400MWs of electricity.
