TOBA TEK SINGH - DCO Syed Javed Iqbal chaired a joint meeting of traders and Fesco officials to review the electricity supply situation in the district.

Representatives of traders and citizens apprised the participants that 20 hour a day loadshedding had ruined all business activities. They added that citizens were also facing drinking water shortage due to non-supply of electricity to the water supply system of TMA. Fesco Xen Safdar Ali claimed that due to shortage of furnace oil, Fesco was supplied only 700 megawatts instead of required 1,400 megawatts which was less than the required demand. On the occasion, the DCO directed him to ensure supply of power to the TMA water supply system and reduce the loadshedding duration to facilitate the public.
