Pakistan: Electricity will soon return to the homes of Pakistan facing economic recession, the power grid has been repaired

Islamabad : Darkness is going to end soon from the homes of Pakistan. The country’s Energy Ministry said on Tuesday that the national electricity grid was affected for about 24 hours but has now been restored. A senior government official said that all 1,112 grid stations have come back online. Due to which electricity will be restored in the whole country. Power supply is closed in Pakistan since Monday. This is the second time after October when such a major fault has come to light in the country’s power grid. However, 220 million people of the country face daily power cuts.

Power returned to many homes

Residents of big cities say that electricity has now returned to their homes. But there is still power failure in some areas of the country. Analysts and officials have blamed the problem on outdated power networks and poor infrastructure. There is a dire need to fix them. At the same time, the government says that it cannot bear this expenditure now. The International Monetary Fund has bailed Pakistan out of economic crisis five times in the last 20 years. The country is still struggling with poverty. This time the installment of IMF is stalled due to differences with the Government of Pakistan.

Lack of resources to run oil and gas powered plants

Pakistan has enough power capacity to meet demand, but lacks the resources to run oil and gas-fired plants. The region is so deep in debt that it cannot afford to invest in infrastructure and power lines.
