In the meeting, discussions were held to reduce the duration of load: shedding in Karachi, especially Lyari, Kemari, Baldia and other areas, and devise mechanism for providing relief to consumers.
Imtiaz Sheikh instructed the K: Electric to reduce load: shedding in Lyari and adjoining areas and for setting up camps in the areas to solve the problems of the consumers at the earliest. He said that load: shedding should not be carried out at pumping stations of water supply and sewage drainage systems so that a smooth supply of drinking water and drainage of sewage could be made possible.
