KARACHI, June 19: Chairman, Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts and Accessories Manufacturers (PAAPAM), Syed Nabeel Hashmi, has said that discrimination and corruption of power distribution companies’ officials has broken all records, as large industrial setups are receiving smooth supply while small units are suffering the most.

In many cases, power distribution companies are dedicated to ensure uninterrupted supply to ‘certain companies’ even in the prevailing severe power crisis as officials have allegedly fixed per hour commission for this undue favour.

Resultantly, production of small industrial units has nosedived due to crippling power cuts stretching over 12 hours in industrial estates, he said.

He also criticised the government for its failure to honour its commitment regarding five days a week provision of gas to the industry because of which industrial production and trading activities have come down to its lowest level.
