New load shedding schedule for industrial sector unacceptable: FPCCI

Share This

Islamabad: The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry on Thursday said the new schedule of ten-hour load shedding for the industrial sector is unacceptable.

Industrial production across the country and in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will take a blow because of the new load shedding schedule while tens of thousands of labourers will face unemployment, it said.

Government has repeatedly claimed to have eliminated the load shedding but the new load shedding schedule for the industrial sector has exposed all such unfounded claims, said President FPCCI Ghazanfar Bilour. He demanded relief for the industrial sector reeling under multiple issues and asked for an independent probe into the worst breakdown across the country a day ahead of the holy month of Ramadan.

He said that inexperienced bureaucrats have been posted against highly technical posts in the power sector which is destabilising the whole system but the rulers seem not concerned about it.

The President of the Apex Chamber said that the important slots in the power system should be filled by the highly experienced and competent engineers otherwise masses and the business community will continue to pay the price of cronyism by those who matter.

Ghazanfar Bilour said that the fault in the power system disturbed life across the country, especially in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and it took a toll on masses in the residences, schools, hospitals, courts and offices, etc. which is shocking.
