Government?has indicated it is working?round the clock?to ensure the recent power crisis being experienced in the country is resolved within the shortest possible time.

Mr. Jinapor said while the?Ministry?is?dealing?with the short-term problem, it will plan ahead by ?taking into account long-term plans that we have? and expressed the confidence that ?the energy sector will continue to improve.?
