Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Forests Ishtiaq Urmar on Tuesday presided over a special meeting on power load shedding and other issues facing the people in PK-69.
The event was attended by PESCO officials and a public delegation from PK-69.
Speaking on the occasion, Forest Minister Ishtiaq Urmar said that the government is strongly against Kunda culture and if there were any complaints about Kunda, timely action should be taken against it.
He said that if there are any problems in most of the areas, action should be taken against the illegal electricity users with the help of police personnel.
Minister for Forests Ishtiaq Urmar while instructing the PESCO officials said that no negligence should be taken regarding the power issues of the people of the said area but these should be resolved in a timely and expeditious manner with the cooperation of the people.
He further said that all resources should be utilized to provide relief to the people.
Referring to the efforts of the provincial government to end power outages, Forest Minister Ishtiaq Urmar said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was constructing small dams to end power outages and meet the energy needs of the province.
He added load shedding has ended in many areas while many small dams are in the final stages of completion. This will help in overcoming the issue of power load shedding in other areas as well.
Appealing to the PK-69 delegation, Forest Minister Ishtiaq Urmar said that all the elements who are using electricity illegally and are involved in Kunda culture should be identified.
Cooperation with PESCO officials is our moral responsibility to get rid of power load shedding together.
