Regarding the fault in the power system, Dastgir said the authorities had shut down the power generation system at night due to low demand in winters to save fuel cost. But when the system was commissioned in the morning, “frequency and voltage fluctuations were observed somewhere between Dadu and Jamshoro”, which led to shutdown of the power generation system, he said. When people woke up this morning in Karachi, the financial capital of Pakistan, there was no light in the house.
water shortage due to electricity
According to information, there was widespread power failure in other cities of Pakistan as well, but Karachi was hit the most. Some people in the city of Karachi, with a population of over 2.3 million, did not get drinking water because water pumps run on electricity. This is not the first time that such a crisis has arisen in the country. In October last year too, there was a 12-hour power failure in Pakistan due to a technical glitch in the power distribution system. Pakistan has become one of the world’s worst financial crisis countries in recent years amid dwindling foreign exchange reserves.
people made fun of
There is no electricity in Pakistan, but on social media people made memes about it. People said that this is old Pakistan. Electricity has been restored in some areas of Pakistan. But in most of the places, even after 13 hours, the lights have not come on. Many people said that they have meetings with foreign clients and their laptops are not charged. They don’t know what to do. One user wrote that the government of Pakistan can neither run the economy, nor fight terrorism, nor conduct elections.
