Power matters

 
June 11, 2021

This refers to the editorial ‘Power outages’ (June 10). Power outages have made the lives of people miserable, and the long wait for the restoration of power is torturous – especially in this sweltering heat. Had the authorities taken timely decisions, the money that is being spent on tackling circular debt could have been spent on the welfare of people.

Power outages have devastating effects on every sector, including industries, offices, hospitals and education institutions. All activities are temporarily suspended when power goes out. There is no doubt that the current government inherited the power crisis from the previous regimes. However, the party should have resolved this issue on a priority basis to protect the economy from further damage and provide relief to people.
