Pakistan Energy, Power, Electricity Crises: An Overview

With the arrival of summer season in the country’s so electricity crisis, load-shedding has intensified as expected. There is a strong protest against unannounced power outages in several cities in Pakistan. But Government of Pakistan is not taking this solemn matter seriously. In many cities of Pakistan the situation is looking increasingly out of control. Because water problem is also related with load shedding. Another reason for this problem is Non-payment of dues. Today the axis of world politics is energy. If conditions remain unchanged, and electricity was not restored then this situation may have serious crisis. There are many reasons the electricity crisis in Pakistan. For-example;

  • Consideration to the lack of new resources to produce electricity. 
  • Poor system of distribution. 
  • Illegal use of electricity. 

But the major reason is that, Public institutions are owed billions of rupees of power companies. It is evident that if government institutions will not pay their dues then how they will purchase oil or gas for their power plants and how the power producing companies will be able to run their power plants. That’s why information is that, that the independent Power Producers (IPPs) has warned the Government of Pakistan if the public institutions will not pay their dues then they (IPPs) will stop producing their power plants in protest. If that happens, then situation will be worse. It is felt that the government is not serious in resolving this problem on solid bases. It is also believe that, the government has issued statements only to defer the public provocation temporarily. Only announcements will not end the load-shedding. These are just hollow slogans. It is the matter of fact that nature of such problem should be presented in a transparent manner. And that the public be told what can be done in this issue. It would be more sensible and prudent political strategy. In addition with this, the opposition should not only use the energy crises to achieve political gains. But the opposition should present the solid solution for such serious issue.
