Since the first day of Ramazan, unannounced loadshedding has made the lives of the people miserable. Fasting in summer is already hard and the shortage of electricity makes it even harder. The situation in Karachi is probably the worst. Since power is usually out during Sehri and Iftari, people face great trouble when preparing meals. Ramazan is a month of blessing. It is unfortunate that the concerned authorities are not doing anything to alleviate the sufferings of the people. Since power is out at odd hours, people cannot sleep properly. This has affected the daily routine of the people. They feel tired and drowsy during work hours.
Although the prime minister held a meeting and directed for minimum loadshedding, a city-wide electricity breakdown occurred on the first day of Ramazan. Many power projects are being inaugurated across the country. However, the country hasn’t received the desired results to date. It is also one of the embarrassing failures of KE that it couldn’t resolve the energy crisis. The government must take immediate action and resolve the issue at its earliest.
