KARACHI : PML-N leader Shahbaz Sharif has said that work on Karachi Metro Bus Project would be started soon. Speaking to a private TV channel, Shahbaz Sharif, whose party emerged as the largest winner in May 11 polls, said launching the Metro Bus Project in Karachi is PML-N’s one of the top priorities. To a question, he said that loadshedding issue would have to be addressed by adopting short, medium and long term measures.

He said as a short-term measure a check on power theft and line losses would be ensured besides recovery of bills from provinces. 

The recovered money will be injected into the system which will serve two aims - stop the circular debt from snowballing further and generate more power, he added. Later, in the long-run additional power would be generated through available resources including coal reserves and added to the national grid, he stated. He vowed that just like “we developed the Punjab, we will build Pakistan on the same lines and the country would be put on a path to a constant progress.”
