Electricity load-shedding in Pakistan is curse

Electricity is in short supply in Pakistan, and as a result electric load shedding, break downs, power outages, fluctuations, blackouts etc are a common feature in the country. Whether it is summer or winter, load shedding is there. Sometimes it is scheduled, while or other occasions it is totally unscheduled. The letter is the worst because it causes untold problems and hardships to the electricity dependent community. It can be confidently said that the electric supply has never been reliable at any time in Pakistan.

There are many factors behind electric load shedding in Pakistan. These factors include shortage in river waters, over population, new connections, electric supply to villages, low generation of electricity, fewer dams, power theft, line losses etc. Then load shedding is the result of corruption, inefficiency, mismanagement and defective planning in WAPDA besides incomplete projects like Kala Bagh Dam, misuse of available resources, no generation from atomic and solar energy, lack of consensus and the apathy of the government contribute to load shedding.

Load shedding is a great curse. It brings untold misery to people belonging to all walks of life weather they are students, patients, businessman, industrialists, farmers, laborers, mechanics, house wives etc. It brings all economic, Agricultural and industrial progress to a standstill. The fluctuation plays havoc with the electric equipments like refrigerators, VCRs, Televisions, and Computers etc. The foreign investors shun investing money in different fields due to load shedding starts a long episode of helplessness and frustration.

Pakistan cannot make progress in any field in the presence of load shedding. Therefore government should take all possible measures to end load shedding from the country. First of all it should remove corruption, inefficiency and mismanagement from WAPDA. New mega dams should be constructed without further delay. The present available resources should be developed immediately. Power should be generated from solar and nuclear energy. Power theft should be should be stopped forthwith. On the other hand people should make wise and proper use of electricity. They should turn to using energy saving device. No doubt such steps can help a great deal in ending load shedding from the country.

Loadshedding in main cities like Lahore, Faisalabad, Sialkot, Multan, etc., extends from 12 to 16 hours daily. Despite the
dengue epidemic, even hospitals are not exempted from the curse of load shedding, although this facility extends to VVIPs living in Punjab.

Has anybody ever given a thought that in case of war, this country would be in darkness, because of a heavy reliance on power generation based on imported furnace oil? Even our national security has been compromised by this corruption and power shortages that it has given birth to.

Loadshedding should either be uniformly done all over the country, or its duration should be in proportion to the occurrence
of theft in cities, towns, villages or industrial sites.

Industrial areas that pay their electricity bills regularly should be assured uninterrupted supply. This will also help alleviate the problem of unemployed labour laid off by closedowns.

Yet this government has selectively subjected the people of this province to the worst kind of undeclared loadshedding. If this is not political blackmail, what else should we call it? Had this government in the past four years come down hard on electricity theft, or allowed already existing IPPs to generate maximum power in accordance with their installed capacity, then this shortage would not have been so acute. Hydro-electric power units if installed would have generated cheaper electricity. What this government did was to deny existing IPPs payment due to them, and thereby create worse artificial shortages to justify this rip-off in the form of rental powers.

Our industry has been grinded to a halt by this criminal negligence of a government dominated by the most corrupt of individuals, who have by their actions abused their political office.
