ISLAMABAD- Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali has said the government is making concerted efforts to resolve the energy crisis in the country.

Addressing an open Katchery in Faisalabad, he said steps are being taken to reduce the duration of load-shedding. He directed the WAPDA staff to ensure their availability in the field to redress public complaints about power supply.

Commenting on the current political situation, the Minister said the government would complete its constitutional tenure. He said those talking about a sacrifice before Eid-ul-Azha are now disappointed. Abid Sher Ali said PML-N government has been mandated to govern the country for five years and the PTI and PAT sit-ins cannot cease the political government.
