Islamabad - Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar called on President Arif Alvi here on Wednesday and briefed him about the issues being faced by the residents of the port city.

The Mayor informed the President about the frequent electricity outages and expressed concern over loadshedding in the city which has made life of the people extremely miserable.

He said that the situation was getting from bad to worse as the residents of the city severely suffer from loadshedding.

Mayor Waseem Akhtar requested the President to assist in the matter so as to ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity to Karachi.
