The Minister issued directives to KE in a meeting with Members of National Assembly from Karachi here, said a press release.
Meeting was aimed to discuss the issues faced by people of Karachi with K-Electric.
The major concerns raised by MNAs were unscheduled load shedding, over billing, disruption in water supply due to power outages.

Upon the directions of Health minister Qadir Patel, a committee will be formed to develop a liaison between elected representatives and K-Electric.
