KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Friday accepted federal government’s offer to take control of Peshawar Electric Supply Corporation (PESCO).

Addressing a press conference here, PTI leader Asad Umar said that his party was ready to run more public organizations if federal government was unable to handle them.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Pervez Khattak will soon write a letter to the federal government in this regard, he informed. Umar said that federal government has to give KP Rs.108 billion in the form of royalty.

“Three provinces are generation electricity more than their demand, but in Punjab power generation is less than demand,” he added.
