Karachi - Sindh Information Minister Shazia Marri Monday said Sindh government is talking to Karachi Electricity Supply Company (KESC), so as to end loadshedding in Karachi. She said this while talking to newsmen after attending inaugural program of Junior Tennis Coaching at Government PECHS Girls College, Karachi. She noted that previous private owners of KESC were not sound financially to run the company. She said Sindh government has urged KESC administration to operate its all power plants for electricity generation. "Provincial government is also ready to help KESC in order to resolve problem of power outages faced by Karachiites," the Minister said adding all out efforts would be made to end load shedding in Karachi. Burning issue of load shedding is not months old but it has been continuing for years. KESC administration has been persuaded to end loadshedding, which is causing unrest amongst people of Karachi, she added. Marri elaborated that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led government has planned to announce new National Finance Commission (NFC) Award in accordance to wishes and needs of masses. She reiterated that Sindh government is taking all-out efforts to shift the right of collection of GST on services from the federation to the provinces. She said like Sindh province, Balochistan also wants the NFC Award under multiple criteria including factors of population, revenue, geographical importance and backwardness, instead of only population basis. She further said unfortunately, sports was not being given importance in past but the present government is striving hard to revive sports. She said cricket and hockey games in past earned respect for the country but now the two are at decline. She said government is studding the causes of downfall of National Cricket Team's performance, besides mulling over accountability in this connection.
