PESHAWAR: Power supply remained disconnected in most parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa due to a technical fault at Tarbela power plant on Wednesday.

The power plant officials said the breakdown is also affecting some cities of Punjab along with KP. Technical teams have reached the site of the power plant to fix the issue. However, they have not given any timeline for the repair of the power plant.

Media reports said such faults take at least eight hours to repair.

Four Chashma Nuclear Power Plants have also tripped due to tripping of lines from the Tarbela power plant.

People in KP and Punjab are suffering due to power breakdown in hot weather. Consumers said there is complete shut down in many areas, while many areas are facing low voltage and outages after short intervals. Business and routine activities have been greatly affected due to the power breakdown.

Despite the government claims of producing power in access of demand, load-shedding continues in most parts of the country. The government argues that areas where people steel electricity face outages.
