Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali said that loadshedding had become more dangerous than terrorism while the government was taking strict action against electricity theft.

He said that government had done much to overcome the energy issue. Dasu Dam, Diyamir, Gudani Power project, Quaid-i-Azam Solar Park and many other hydel, solar and coal projects are being completed by the government, he detailed.

He condemned the allegations of Sheikh Rashid against the government and said that the latter as minister of railways had completely destroyed its structure.
