Electricity shortfall continues, PPP’s Policy making skills byte the dust

Published on Author K. Shahzad1 Comment

Its well over the 2 years since the so called Pakistan Peoples Party is power but they came up with lack of policy making skills in every aspect. Same is the condition of electricity. I am safe to say that the power production capabilities of country decreased over the last years instead of increasing. As dawn reports current capability of country’s power production just hangs on 11,725 megawatts which seems less then the capability we had earlier, clearly more than 12000 megawatts for sure. The current requirement varies around the 16,662 megawatts. Which means that the demand and supply gap is still 5000 megawatts.

Either its non functional power plants or reasons are no matter what, the thing is that current administration have failed to power the country. That is not all, the real insult to injury comes in when we recall their promises of ending the load shedding on first Dec 2008 then June 2009 and then the last unfulfilled promise of making this happen on end of Dec 2009.

Their claims were clear lies and that is testified by the current figures. Put the issue of ending load-shedding on side, figures tell us that government didn’t got able even narrow the demand supply and reversely we are facing load-shedding much much more than what we witnessed in Musharraf’s era before the PPP came in power. It used to be few half hour intervals of load shedding in peak hot months but now its like 8 to 10 hours daily in a weather which is moderate, not so cold nor hot.

This is even much more serious than being unable to provide the basic needs, it is open insult of democracy that they are currently doing by making the promises and then not doing any thing to fulfill them. It is like making a promise to silent the masses for the moment and then not caring at all.

We as a country shall rise, but only in case when we learn from the previous experiences, vote in true and honest people to lead us by slapping a NO into the face of lairs and cheaters. And this rule must not apply to a certain group or party but the individuals who have not been able to perform no matter where they belong.

One Response to Electricity shortfall continues, PPP’s Policy making skills byte the dust

  1. Cheap Electricity From Kalabagh Dam a need of Citizens of Karachi.
    Disease of Provincialism in Politicians of NWFP and Sindh is mainly responsible for power shortage mayhem and the resultant chaos in the society due to tormenting blackouts and long power outrages.
    Importance of Electricity Versus Wastage of Water for Feudals.
    Why opposition on generation of electricity by Kalabagh Dam in which no water is wasted but provide option of safe storage of water for future use. Electricity is the need of each and every minute and moment of human life, people can not tolerate outage of electricity for one hour while agriculture land can tolerate need of water even many weeks, but why importance to agriculture of few feudals and no importance to electricity which is the need of each and every citizens of Pakistan generally and Karachi specially, because life of all citizens of Karachi(city of lights and Industry) revolves around provision of cheap electricity.

    • Children weeps in the night due to high temperature and mosquitoes bite due to outage of electricity,
    • Students can not study in night due to outage of electricity.
    • Industry can not run without electricity.
    • Machinery can not run without electricity.
    • Surgeons can not operate without electricity.
    • A patient on life machine can not survive without electricity.
    • Even in agriculture we can not use Tubewell without electricity.
    • Fertilizer can not be manufactured without electricity.
    • Pesticide can not be manufactured without electricity.
    • Sugar Mills,Cotton Mills,Textiles Mills.Flour Mills,Rice Mills can not run without electricity.

    Above points clearly indicates that use of water for generation of electricity is 1000 times better than wastage of water on land or in sea for few feudals, because water wasted in land or sea is not recoverable but water use for generation of electricity in Kalabagh Dam will be available for use for agriculture and Industry as it was suitable before generation of electricity and there will be no wastage of water.

    Sindh,Balochistan and Frontier are against Kalabagh
    because as per Sindh LOGIC Thar Coal is better than Kalabagh as Kalabagh will emmit BLACK SMOKE and Thar Coal will emmit fresh air full of Oxygen.
    And as per Balouchistan Vision GAS and coal extracted from Balouchistan are one of the most clean source of energy and Kalabagh will pollute air and land resouces and people will drown in Kalabagh and no one is dying in the coal mines of Balochistan.
    And as per Frontier wisdom, Royalty of Tarballa is so important that Pakistan can be broken for that and three rivers of Punjab can be sold to India by General Ayoub belonging from frontier for Construction of Tarbella in Frontier but Kalabgh dam is not good looking as it is in Punjab.
    All provinces want Provincial autonomy but Punjab should open or close its canals , IIRIGATE ITS LAND AND construct Dams as per desire of other provinces and after asking from other provinces Because it is necessary for unity and prosperity of Pakistan as when there will be no agriculture,no electricity and no water then Pakistan will be more united and more prosperous.
    From all above points it is clear that NWFP and Sindh who are opposing the generation of electricity and preservation and safe storage of water in Kalabagh dam are criminals of humanity as well as of World and politicians of these provinces are mainly responsible for shortage of electricity in the country and cities.
