PPP seeks discussion in NA over power rates hike

ISLAMABAD: The main opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) submitted on Monday an adjournment motion to the National Assembly secretariat, seeking discussion on the government’s recent decision to impose an additional charge of 70 paisa per unit on power consumers in Punjab and Sindh for the next 25 years.

The adjournment motion, a copy of which was distributed to media by the office of the opposition leader in the National Assembly, has been moved by Syed Naveed Qamar, Dr Nafisa Shah, Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah, Shazia Marri, Imran Zafar Leghari and Aijaz Jakhrani.

Terming it a vital public issue, the PPP MNAs in their motion stated that the decision of the government would put further burden on the already burdened consumers, who were by now paying hefty sums in their electricity bills under various surcharges.

Instead of providing promised relief, the PPP members alleged, the present government was creating more difficulties for the masses by imposing various surcharges, sending inflated bills, not providing budgetary subsidy to farmers and failing to control transmission and line losses.

The motion was submitted by the PPP three days after the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) allowed an upfront tariff of 71 paisa per unit to be charged to consumers for evacuation of up to 4,950 megawatts of electricity from Thar and Karachi to load demand centres in Punjab as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

The special upfront tariff — first for a transmission line — was approved by Nepra for an 878-kilometre Matiari-Lahore transmission line to be built by a Chinese firm at a cost of $2.1 billion to evacuate upcoming 4,950MW of electricity from coal-based power plants in Thar, Hub and Port Qasim.
