Pervez Musharraf Islamabad, May 29 (ANI): Taking a strong stand over reports of cheap electricity being provided to former President General Pervez Musharraf’s farm house in Chak Shahzad, the Pakistan Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has asked the water and power secretary and other concerned officials to appear before it.

The PAC chairman Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan ordered the top officials to appear before the committee with all important documents regarding the issue, The Daily Times reports.

“We have written a letter today to the secretary water and power to appear before the committee and give his explanation over the media reports,” said a senior PAC official said.

The official added that senior officials of the Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) would also be summoned soon.

Earlier, it was reported that Musharraf’s newly built farm house in Chak Shahzad was being provided electricity at agricultural rates, which were much cheaper than those for urban electricity. (ANI)
