Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Punjab Mian Maqsood Ahmad, stated that the prices hike of daily use commodities and power outage are getting worst and become a major crises for the country.

Government officials repeatedly claimed to wipe out the load-shedding by 2017, but the on ground situation is contrary to the slogans, as the short fall reaching beyond 5,000 megawatts.
