    ISLAMABAD: India may claim the world’s biggest blackout, but in Pakistan an endemic energy crisis blamed on years of mismanagement cripples the economy and makes millions of lives a daily misery.

    Six weeks after the new prime minister in Islamabad promised the shortage would be his top priority, blackouts have reached a peak – reportedly up to 16 hours a day in urban areas and as much as 22 hours a day in the rural parts of the country.

    But with political posturing becoming more acute as the weak coalition stutters towards general elections, there is no quick end in sight.

    Unprecedented power failures blacked out over half of India for two days last week, affecting more than 600 million people when three national grids collapsed.

    In Pakistan, however, shortages day in, day out highlight chronic underinvestment in infrastructure, long-term planning sacrificed to short-term expediency, lack of leadership, cronyism and corruption.

    For ordinary people it is almost unbearable, particularly during the holy month of Ramazan when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, coinciding this year with temperatures over 50 degrees Celsius.

    Peak demand for electricity in the summer is around 18,000 megawatts, with a third of that coming from air-conditioning, but power companies only manage to supply 13,000 to 14,000 MW.

    There is one Islamic channel where a fat guys screech and cry wearing green turban on stage.

    One guy among the followers stood up and asked a question related to high cost of electricity.

    The fat guy replied, you should not pay for electricity, you should only pay for the things you really see with your eyes! Its wrong to pay for electricity!:shocked:

    The whole of Pakistan peal load demand is just 18,000 MW. Here in Delhi last winter the Peak Power Demand was over 5200 MW.
    This is indeed a very sorry state of industrialization/urbanisation in Pakistan, and they are happy with their borrowed Nuclear Missiles.

    pakistan should tap jinns to make electricity

    this guy has all figured it out Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Mahmood has published papers concerning djinni. He has proposed that djinni could be tapped to solve the energy crisis.

    soon pakistan will be power surplus all thanks to genies.
