Pakistan pottery makers seek attention

One of key issues in Pakistan polls is chronic power shortage affecting industries, including pottery.

    Pakistan goes to the polls in two days, and one of the key issues facing voters is a chronic power shortage.

    The energy crisis is affecting many industries, including pottery - one of the oldest in Multan.

    Pottery making is a centuries old craft handed down from generation to generation, but it is in serious crisis due to the chronic electricity shortage.
