As per the reports of local media, Karachi experienced gas and power load-shedding on the very first day of the holy month, contrary to the claims of no power and gas load-shedding.
The sizzling weather conditions and the extended suspension of gas and electricity added to the woes of the citizens.
Many areas of Karachi including, Gulberg, Korangi, Saddar, Liaquatabad, Orangi Town and Malir suffered from the power and gas load-shedding during the Sehri and Iftar timings.
Previously on the 24th of April, the Ministry of Energy spokesperson had said that the government will make sure that the electricity is provided without interruption during the Sehri and Iftar time throughout the entire month of Ramazan.
He went on to add that no unannounced power load-shedding will occur during these timings.
Only online businesses will be given the permission to operate. The businesses that are exempted from the lockdown will be allowed to operate until 5:00 pm.
On the other hand, the government has taken the decision of extending its international flight operations until the 15th of May amid the coronavirus crisis.
