He said that the dues of the three institutions, including K Electric, will be paid to the Sindh government soon. Nasir Shah directs senior officials of HESCO and SEPCO to ensure the installation of MR meters in the government depts soon so that bills can be reconciled and payment of the institutions can be ensured. He said that daily life of people is being severely affected due to long load shedding across Sindh.

He added that K-Electric has to understand the importance of human lives in the harshest weather. Ghani said that load shedding of 12 to 16 hours in such intense heat stroke has made the life of the people miserable.
