kkk.jpgMUZAFFARGARH, July 30 (APP): Federal minister for information and broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira has urged PML-N leaders to avoid political point scoring on the issue of loadshedding and advised them to help strengthen the federation.While addressing a press conference along with federal minister for water and power Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar at Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Station, he said that last Friday a cyclone-type windstorm damaged around 19 steel structure transmission towers of Wapda in Muzaffargarh that excluded 1800 Mega Watt of power from the national grid, which disrupted the power supply.However, the Punjab CM tried to score political points on this unprecedented natural disaster that had extremely damaged four main transmission lines including one 500 KV line and three 220 KV lines.Kaira praised Wapda engineers who rushed to the desert-like site from all over the country and managed to restore supply of 1100 Mega Watt of electricity supply. Another 350 MW of power supply would be restored by today evening and the rest of the 350 MW by Tuesday evening, he added.
