Instead of worrying about nuclear assets Pakistan should worry about the country-wide power blackout that keeps on striking the country with freaking regularity. The harrowing term ‘power fully restored’ is a mockery of modern-day living and the agencies that proudly use it to announce it after power is finally restored should be ashamed of it.
Power was “fully restored” across the country after a major 12-hour power breakdown took place amounting to 8,000 megawatts depriving large swathes of the country including provincial Karachi and Lahore. The power outage has attributed the breakdown to an accidental fault in the transmission system and it was mentioned that several power plants in the south tripped in phases due to an accidental fault in the country’s southern transmission system.
Interestingly it was reported that the Sindh High Court issued arrest orders for the top management of K-Electric stating that it pays millions of rupees in electric charges and still faces breakdowns and this probably was the first time when such judicial action was taken against a utility providing agency. This may be a dangerous way things are moving and hopefully, they may be timely prevented. The Weekender
