Minister for Power Omer Ayub has asked the K-electric to improve its electricity distribution system for the convenience of its consumers.

In a tweet, he said the federal government has already approved provision of additional one hundred and fifty megawatt of electricity to the K-electric keeping in view the difficulties of the people of Karachi.

However the lack of required distribution system by the K-electric is impeding the supply of this additional electricity to the private company.
