Pakistan Power Breakdown: There is still power failure in many areas of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif’s minister could not fulfill his promise

Islamabad: Pakistan’s power crisis has not ended even after almost 24 hours. Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s government had given a deadline of 10 pm on Monday night. Despite this, many parts of the neighboring country still remained in darkness overnight. The Sharif government has ordered an inquiry into the power failure. Pakistan’s Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir said that the power failed due to ‘votage surge’. Pakistan’s grid has failed for the second time in the last three months. Geo TV writes that the people of Pakistan have become used to daily blackouts. The power crisis came as a new challenge in front of Pakistan, which is facing economic crisis. Almost all major cities like Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi were plunged into darkness since early Monday. This also created a water crisis. People’s mobile phones went off due to non-charging. Power restoration work was going on till Tuesday morning.

Pakistan is already facing power shortage and long cuts. To save electricity, the government has issued an order to close the markets at 8 o’clock. Pakistan, immersed in an economic crisis, first faced the crisis of flour, then gas and petrol. After this, now electricity has made us cry.

Khurram Dastgir’s promise proved false
Pakistan’s Ministry of Energy said that the problem occurred after the national grid was down at 7:34 am. Due to this the entire power system failed. Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir said on Monday that repair work is underway. I assure that power will be fully restored in 12 hours. However, Pakistani media reports tell something else. A ministry official said that 117 power grids were without electricity across Pakistan. This is the second time in four months in Pakistan, when the power grid of the entire country has come to a standstill in this way. There was a major power cut in October last year. Then there was a power cut in cities like Karachi, Lahore for about 12 hours.

The minister said, shut down the plant at night
Pakistan’s Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir said that since the demand for electricity decreases in winter. So, as an economic measure, we temporarily shut down the power generation units at night. When the system was turned on on Monday morning, there were voltage fluctuations between Dadu and Jamshoro in the south of the country, affecting the grid.

Curse the rulers on social media
There was discussion on the social media about the power failure in Pakistan and a lot of memes were made. Pakistanis cursed their rulers. During this, #ElectricityShutDown and #poweroutage remained on the top trend. A user named Junaira Inam wrote, ‘What is the use of securing the border, when the country is becoming hollow inside. We need to rethink our priorities now!’ Famous RJ Anushe Ashraf taunted, gas has gone out of reach of common man and now the problem of light failure. The education system is already poor, it is meaningless to talk about infrastructure. Pakistan has become like a business for a few selected people.
