Pakistani PM asks people to show patience on energy crisis

PAKISTAN: Pakistani Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani Monday appealed to people of the whole country to show patience and restrain from violence since it would not help to overcome the energy crisis.

Referring to the violent protest in Multan city in the eastern Punjab province against energy crisis, Gillani said that the issues of electricity, energy shortage and wheat crises had been inherited by the present government.

The Associated Press of Pakistan quoted Gillani as saying that the government was striving to resolve the problems on war-footing.

Gillani said he had already directed the Minister for Water and Power to personally visit different regions and take immediate measures to deal with the energy problems.

Violence broke out in Multan on Monday as demonstrators took to the street to protest against power shortage.

Mobs set ablaze vehicles and burnt the office of electricity supply to unleash their anger towards the load-shedding due to power shortage.
