ISLAMABAD: In a bid to clear outstanding dues of billions of rupees, the capital’s electricity company disconnected power supply to most major government departments on Tuesday to demonstrate its commitment to cracking down on power thieves and defaulters.

The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) cut power to the Prime Minister’s Secretariat, President House, Supreme Court and Pakistan Secretariat, including the offices of the Ministry of Water and Power.

But the blackout was short lived. Power was restored to the Supreme Court within half an hour of the disconnection.

Basit Zaman, an Iesco spokesperson, told Dawn that power was restored upon receipt of payment of outstanding bills from the Pakistan Works Department (PWD).

The country’s leadership remained largely unaffected by the power cuts. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was already en route to the United Kingdom when his offices were cut off from the national grid. The president’s residence is equipped with standby generators that are switched on if the power supply is suspended.
