Load Shedding in Pakistan

 

Considering the past few decades, Pakistan has unfortunately surrounded by majority of problems. Apart from other issues, energy crisis is the major one. Load shedding in Pakistan is the most common problem that has gripped the nation since past few decades. All former and current governments of Pakistan have failed to eradicate the menace of load shedding in Pakistan.
 


At the time of election every party promises to fulfill the basic needs and demands of the people but when it comes to power it forgets its promises. We voted for the people’s party expecting a better result but when the people’s party came into power again the same tradition was repeated. Instead of solving the problems of common men Zardari become the chairman of PPP and started accommodating his relatives and friends in the government. Load shedding added to the misery of common man. With load shedding factories which had provided bread and butter to 90 percent labor class were closed; inflation increased. When factories were closed thousands of people became jobless which added to their miseries. Many people committed suicide because they could not meet the demands of life. The common man had been already hit hard by the sky rocketing prices. To add fuel to the fire load shedding added to his woes. The common man could get relief back home previously after a day’s work. He would enjoy the TV, sleep in a well ventilated room with a cooler which was enough to beat the heat but now he is frustrated whether he is at a job or jobless without electricity. If he is at a job he cannot afford the facilities of UPS or generator to protect him from hot weather.
 


 

Who will solve the problem of load shedding? The minister water and power makes promises but doesn’t fulfill them. The government should make dams installed grid stations so that the common may doesn’t suffer and they should plan ten years in advance to meet the needs of the growing population. Let’s hope and pray that the problem of load shedding is solved soon and we are able to make progress industrially and economically.

Load shedding can be easily resolved with some proper management and inhibiting corruption. We need to let skilled people take over the system.

Load shedding specially in summers is a means to set business of generators and UPS. It’s horrible how some people are ready to go to any lengths to get money.

Load shedding is one of the major issues in Pakistan. But, its not something which cannot be solved. With a bit honesty and dedication, it can be cured for good.

Pakistan had planned a few projects with China to overcome the ratio of load shedding, recently the Prime Minister of Pakistan initiated the power plant in Gwadar port. Insha Allah it gives the positive output to reduce the load shedding.

The major and small projects of Solar system plan is the main source to get rid from the Load Shedding in Pakistan. I think Government should focus to solarize the street lights and all the offices buildings, it helps to reduce the energy.

With the help of CPEC, recently the Prime Minister of Pakistan opened the new energy power plant project in Gwadar Port, I think it may help in the future to overcome the duration of load shedding in Pakistan especially in Sindh.

Lot of plans to overcome the load shedding are in the pipe line but need to implement on it. I read from any where that our Baluchistan is full of coal and it has an ability to produce energy but no one take interest on this plan.

I think first we need to get control on stolen power in Pakistan,the simplest thing you can do is make sure that lights are turned off when you are not using it because due to the miss use and the stealing in electricity we cannot build the programs of generating power.

The two main factors which behave like a cancer for the prosperity of Pakistan, one Load Shedding and the other Terrorism. I hope that Pakistan will soon get rid from the Load shedding because the Government of Pakistan signs many contract with China to buildup the power plant projects in my areas.

The government has not shown any clear intention of producing and increasing the production, I think dams are the only solution and the source which make a vital role to get rid from load shedding in Pakistan.

Yes, I think the idea of making thermal power energy will reduce the energy crisis. Government builts many small and large thermal power projects, it is quite effective to overcome the load shedding in Pakistan.
