PTEA for steps to overcome energy crisis

Criticising massive power loadshedding and voicing concerns over rising electricity shortfall, Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA) has urged the upcoming government to take measures to overcome energy crisis for the survival of industries and economy.

 The PTEA office-bearers in a joint statement said here on Tuesday that due to electricity and gas shortage in the country, industry is suffering one billion rupees daily loss while thousands of workers have lost their jobs. If the problem was not resolved on emergent basis, all efforts to promote industrialisation and job creation will prove fruitless, they added. Industrial sector is the main victim of this massive loadshedding despite the fact that business community fulfils its national obligations by paying all taxes to the government. They said loadshedding is adding woes to business community while the government is torturing them by enhancing electricity tariff.
