Con­cerns over load-shed­ding

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - HAS­SAN SID­DIQUI

I would like to bring to the no­tice of the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to­wards alarm­ing in­crease in load shed­ding and en­ergy cri­sis and its ad­verse im­pacts the public and econ­omy of the coun­try. The fac­to­ries and in­dus­tries have started clos­ing down due to un­avail­abil­ity of elec­tric­ity and peo­ple have started to move to other coun­tries. More­over, thou­sands of peo­ple have been ren­dered job­less due to fre­quent break down of elec­tric­ity.

This prob­lem of load shed­ding also re­sults in strikes and protests and cre­ates ir­ri­ta­tion am­ing masses. This can be re­solved by mak­ing ef­fec­tive uti­liza­tion of re­sources. More­over, ef­fi­cient poli­cies should be de­vised in or­der to over­come en­ergy cri­sis — Karachi
