He maintained that due to the lockdown, the supply of furnace oil has also been disturbed due to which the power generation has been affected.

The situation has resulted in increased electricity load-shedding in Karachi and adjacent areas, he said.

The company’s spokesperson mentioned that the situation will return to normal as soon as the supply of oil is regulated.

Citizens, on the other hand, believed that K-electric is creating an artificial power crisis.

  • 9000 OKR bill aya apr 2020 ka without ac. 27 ramadhan and first 2 eid days ko unannounced loadshedding happened. Now since june started its happening on a daily basis. Imran is sleeping as usual. K-E is corrupt and rotten to the core.

      • Governor rule and start kicking sindhi out of karachi for once and all. Sindhis are polluting n damaging Karachi since the last 73 years.

  • Due to lockdown OIL delivery is disturbed limiting generation….OKAY

    Due to ease in lockdown offices are open and everything is getting back to normal…{Palm face}…bhai kehna kia chahtay ho….waisay konsa aapne 24/7 bijli deni thi jo lockdown/no lockdown khel rahay ho :P … KE pe to corona 1990 se aaya hua hai

  • K electric has billed me 16500 in may n previous bills are 5000 around they billed me such high please

  • For sure this problem will remain until and unless we get rid of this mafia i.e K.E, We have been hearing and it’s commitment of K.E to govt. For upgrading their system but all has gone in vein. Sindh govt snd PTI should be ashamed for this brutal act and also for the prices we karachites are paying inshape of bills cosiderrd to be the highest in south east asia as per information. Although i know it is useless to share my views as yheir is no justice here.
