One of key difference between a developing country and a developed (a.k.a civilized) country is the power management. Electricity has become a basic need, and its unhindered, continuous and smooth supply is the necessity, but in countries like Pakistan, its still a luxury and more or less an elusive dream.
Whether it is the mega city like Karachi or a remote small city like Kohat, the aggravated story of dismal power supply remains the same. Throughout the country, in all the four provinces, in every major or minor city, in every town or village, there nothing exist like solid and robust power supply.
The so-called load-shedding remains the integral part of rural and urban life. It docent even go away in winter, but in the summer, it becomes the thorn in the eye. The abuse and curses WAPDA gets in summer, if written on paper and loaded on Titanic, Titanic wouldn’t require a storm to get drowned.
Hide and seek role played by electricity only irate the consumers more. It not only snatches the mental and physical peace, but also results in massive financial losses in regard of electronic appliances. Frequent power breakdowns have turned lives of people miserable.
Whenever the protests are raised, government’s obstinate clowns shrug and with an intelligentand scornful frown blame the scarce water storage units. Whose fault it is? Who has to resolve these issues? of course, its the government duty. That is why they are the government. Its their responsibility provide the people with basic utilities like power supply and others. If there are problems, they are the ones to resolve them, if they can’t do it, they have no right to remain in power. And people, why in the hell we always elect these people with vested interest who always deceive us?
