The KESC and IPPs are constantly claiming that government departments have yet to clear their huge electricity bills. They are saying that if their dues are paid after all, there will be no problem of cash flow, which would mean no problem of power cuts. Why? Because then they would be in a position to enhance production and would be able to run their plants at full capacity. This is the proper way to solve the problem of power shortage. The Prime Minister should ask Shauket Tareen to do the needful in this regard. One more thing Mr. Prime Minister We suffered a lot in the past for the folly of levying duty on the import of alternative energy items like windmills, solar cells etc. I have to tell you that some bright sparks at the CBR have again imposed a six percent duty on solar cells. -SHAIKH MANAQIB IRTAQA, Karachi, October 20.
