Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has directed provision of maximum electricity during the holy month of Ramazan, especially at the time of Sehar and Iftar.

Chairing a high level meeting in Islamabad on Thursday regarding energy-related matters, he said the government is focused on resolving the issue of energy as a top priority.

The Minister said that additional electricity will be added to the national grid by early next year through completion of ongoing projects, which will help improve the energy situation and reduce load-shedding.

Secretary Water and Power informed that all power companies have been instructed to avoid unscheduled power load-shedding.

He said that there has been excessive demand for electricity in recent days due to the hot temperatures across large parts of the country, but load management has been carried out prudently to facilitate the people as much as possible.
