Hamza Shahbaz, the chief minister of Punjab, declared on Monday that the cost of electricity for homes using up to 100 units of electricity per month will be covered by the provincial government.
The Punjab government would cover the utility costs for customers who use up to 100 units of energy, according to the chief minister, who was speaking to a press conference in Lahore.
The relief initiative, which would assist nine million households, has been allocated Rs100 billion by the government. This will encourage people who consume more than 100 units of electricity to conserve energy, according to Hamza.

The government would give solar panels to those in need so they may switch to alternative sources of electricity, the chief minister added.
CM Hamza added that Pakistan will receive assistance from friendly nations and that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Programme will continue. He promised that “the economic situation will be back on track.”
The chief minister criticised the PTI and asserted that the country would hold the party’s leaders accountable. “The PTI government destroyed the economy, and Imran Khan must account for foreign money, Toshakhana, and Farah Gogi’s billions of rupees in corruption,” said a source.
Regarding the by-elections in Punjab scheduled for July 17, CM Hamza predicted that the PML-N would win.
