Be a re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zen

Enterprise - - LETTERS - Muhammad Saad Karachi

Iwould like to bring the at­ten­tion of the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to ven­ti­late the evils of load-shed­ding so that they can take prompt ac­tion to re­move this un­de­sir­able haz­ardous prob­lem. The curse of load-shed­ding has been dam­ag­ing ev­ery­one’s daily rou­tine as well as the weak­en­ing the eco­nomic sta­tus of the coun­try.

The lo­cal­ity I live in is also a vic­tim of load­shed­ding which, at times, can go on for more than four hours. This has be­come a nui­sance for young and se­nior cit­i­zens alike. In­di­vid­u­als should take steps to save en­ergy by switch­ing off un­wanted lights or by us­ing en­ergy savers. How­ever, this is not the case as house­holds con­sume en­ergy at will with­out think­ing about its long term ef­fects. Mar­kets and com­mer­cial ar­eas con­sume elec­tric­ity which be­comes a bur­den on the coun­try and as the coun­try is al­ready fac­ing an en­ergy cri­sis, there­fore, con­serv­ing even a lit­tle amount of en­ergy will help the coun­try by miles.

More­over, ev­ery sec­tor of Pak­istan is un­der­per­form­ing be­cause of the coun­try’s mount­ing en­ergy cri­sis. This has re­sulted in a trade deficit as pro­duc­tion has de­creased while de­mands are con­tin­u­ously in­creas­ing. Al­though the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties are do­ing their part in pro­vid­ing elec­tric­ity to the peo­ple, it is also the duty of the in­di­vid­u­als to con­serve en­ergy as much as they can.
