Federal Minister for Energy Engineer Khurram Dastgir suspected a foreign hand in the massive country-wide power breakdown. According to specifics, the energy minister spoke at a press conference about the nationwide power outage.
He claimed that there is sufficient fuel available to operate the thermal power plants. Rarely are the high-energy-consumption power plants used to maintain the fuel price adjustment.
The minister reported that a three-person committee has been established by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to investigate the causes of the power outage. The ministry will cooperate with the committee headed by Musadiq Malik.
