The government's claim of Rs 500-800 billion loss due to ongoing sit-ins by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek has been challenged by economists, business community. Former Finance Minister Selman Shah said here Saturday that so far the ongoing sit-ins have not inflicted any major loss to the economy because these are being held in the federal capital where there are no production units.
Power Distribution Companies (Discos) with a view to showing reduction in losses have reportedly sent inflated bills, well-informed sources told Business Recorder. Discos have sent extra reading over and above the consumed units which is the main reason for the inflated bills, the sources added. The government has also shown improved recoveries by withdrawing Rs 1.30 per unit subsidy for those consumers using 200-300 units in a month as per agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Former President and Co-chairman Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari on Saturday said the issue would have been resolved if Imran Khan had not submitted to Iftikhar Chaudhry in the Supreme Court on August 28, 2013.

A government spokesman on Saturday night categorically stated that there was no question of resignation of prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Moreover, he is not proceeding on leave nor has any member from the government side made such suggestion.
