ISLAMABAD/KARACHI: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday took notice of the energy crisis that arose because the Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) disconnected electricity supply to the Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM), DawnNews reported.
Earlier, KESC had cut off power supply to the PSM on account of non-payment of 93 crore rupees.
Since the suspension of electricity, PSM has virtually remained closed.
PM Nawaz, subsequently, took notice of the situation.
Meanwhile, Minster of Industry and Production, Murtaza Jatoi, reached Karachi and summoned an important meeting pertaining to the matter, following the request of PSM and KESC.
Jatoi expressed hope that electricity would be soon restored for PSM.
