PESHAWAR: On Wednesday, the Supreme Court directed the Centre to submit a reply over load-shedding in the provincial capital.

Hearing a petition filed by citizens in the SC’s Peshawar registry, Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar also summoned power companies to appear before the court on Thursday.

Justice Nisar inquired the reason behind rampant load-shedding in the city from the chief executive of the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO) the reason, to which the official commented that the company lacked funds to facilitate better power infrastructure.

The court also probed questions regarding the WAPDA plan in order to provide relief to the masses.

Justice Nisar held hearings on the similar issue in Karachi as well in May, when he termed the power crisis a “criminal negligence”.
