Huge losses due to 12 hours a day load shedding, APTMA

Jun '11
Spokesman of All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab said Tuesday that 12 hours a day load shedding to the biggest cluster of the textile industry situated at Manga – Raiwind Road, Multan – Bhai Pheru under LESCO jurisdiction is causing huge production losses on daily basis.

He said a sizeable workforce is being hit hard during load shedding, as the affected textile units have no option but to lay off. According to him, this situation may lead to a serious law and order situation in the concerned areas.

APTMA spokesman has also questioned the partiality towards textile industry and said the textile industry has failed to understand that why it is being subjected to 10 -12 hours load shedding when shortage/gap has considerably been overcome.

He said the government should provide uninterrupted power supply to textile industry consumers on independent and grouped feeders, enabling it to achieve production mainly meant for exports.

It may be noted that President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari has declared 2011 as the Year of Textile. The industry is therefore keenly looking forward to achieve record export target of $14 billion this year.

The APTMA spokesman has urged the Federal Minister for Water and Power to direct LESCO for observing exemption from load shedding for textile industry across the country, enabling it to meet the high expectations of President of Pakistan from the industry.
