Islamabad (Web Desk): Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed on Tuesday said it seemed that electricity in Karachi is being controlled by someone in Mumbai.
“It seems that who will get how much electricity in Karachi is being controlled [by someone in] Mumbai,” remarked the CJP while presiding over a three-member bench who heard a suo motu case on unannounced loadshedding in Sindh.
CJP Gulzar remarked that private companies such as the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), Power Division and the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC) are taking advantage of mistakes made by the government. “No one is doing anything. What services are you providing to people? What is your justification for staying on the job? You all should be fired,” he demanded.
The counsel for the power supply company, Ali Zafar, informed the court that the company has nine directors and that it is being run as a joint venture between Saudi and Kuwaiti business groups.
