Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif has directed his government to ensure that there is no loadshedding during Sehri and Iftar times in the holy month of Ramzan— set to start at the end of March.

He also gave directions that there should be minimum loadshedding in the upcoming summer season and directed authorities to accelerate the process of solarising government buildings.

He asked for the completion of all projects in the power sector and solarisation in the country within the stipulated time.


Earlier this year, Pakistan faced an energy crisis when a major power outage left the entire country without electricity for more than 12 hours.

Amid the energy crisis, last year, the premier formed a committee that worked on reducing electricity consumption in government offices by 30 per cent. He also ordered officials to convert federal government buildings to solar energy at the earliest.
