Chairman Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) Shakeel Durrani said that power outages would continue till 2018. The statement is both pleasing and sad. It is pleasing because, it is for the first time that any government official has given the correct time as former Federal Minister for Water and Power of Pakistan always gave wrong timings and deadlines. The sad thing is that in our country where wind energy, solar energy can produce thousands of megawatts will continue to witness loadshedding problems till 2018. What this government has done for the poor people is hard to find but one thing is clear WAPDA chairman has said the truth. MUBASHIR MAHMOOD, Karachi, June 29.
