Honorable Minister Pervez Rashid was shown saying during a telecast that the total power generating capacity in the country was 14,000 Mega Watts and the demand for the electricity was much more. Whereas the former president General Pervez Musharraf is on record to have said so many times that his govt. left a total of 19,000 MW power generation capacity, but the power generating units are not being operated to their full capacity. Obviously, one of them is incorrect in his assertion. Could someone more knowledgeable put us wise on this count, please?
