Imran Khan’s office do not have money to pay electricity bills, may lose connection soon

In a major embarrassment for Imran Khan, the electricity supply to the Pakistan Prime Minister’s Secretariat is likely to be snapped over non-payment of bills from months running into crores.

The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) issued a notice in this regards on August 28. According to media reports, the Pakistan Prime Minister’s Secretariat currently owes over Rs 41 lakh to power company IESCO. Sources in the IESCO have claimed that the Secretariat has failed to pay the dues even though several reminder notices were sent.

“This is a recurrent problem with the Secretariat. We will cut off the power supply if dues are not paid,” an IESCO source was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, the annual fiscal deficit of Pakistan has reportedly risen to the highest in the last three decades at 8.9 per cent for the financial year 2018-19.

The fiscal deficit is a difference between revenues and expenditures of the federal government. The deficit increased to 8.9 per cent of Pakistan’s gross domestic product in the year that ended in June. The fiscal deficit was 6.6 per cent last year, reported Dawn.
