Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that now the caretaker government is fully responsible for load shedding.

“We are only responsible for our tenure,” stated the ousted PM.

While addressing media outside the Accountability Court he said that there was an increase of 10 MW of electricity during our government and load shedding remained under control but now it is the responsibility of caretaker government to eliminate load shedding.

Nawaz indulged in self-praise instead and said no government had ever bothered to construct Motorway and people should evaluate who had exterminated the menace of load shedding and who plunged the country into darkness. There should be no delay in completion of Multan- Sukkur Motorway.

A few days back Shahbaz Sharif had given similar statements by taking off the blame of load shedding from PMLN and placing it on the caretaker government.

He said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf of Imran Khan did nothing in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during its five years rule. He said the journey to Chitral has been reduced from 24 hours to 12 hours as a result of the completion of Lowari Tunnel by PML-N government.

“Today, the power load shedding is at its minimum though the temperatures peak. But as our government is completing its term tonight, the masses should blame the interim government and not me or (N League supremo) Nawaz Sharif if the power crisis recurs after tomorrow,” stated PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif.

“There was no load-shedding when Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was in governance.”

Pakistan has the potential to produce energy from nuclear resources, coal power plants and hydropower plants, but repeatedly the governments have failed to anticipate the demand for electricity which has resulted in a severe energy shortage. Last year in December, the government made an announcement that they have fulfilled the promise, which they made to the public four and a half years ago of producing surplus electricity in the country. However, today’s energy shortages prove otherwise.
