Electricity load shedding in Pakistan has increased manifold. Minister of water and power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf assured that electricity load shedding would be done according to time schedule. He assured that electricity load shedding will finish by the end of the year 2009 but instead it is doubled what it was in the past year 2009. It is big failure of the government of Pakistan. No country can make progress without electricity.
Here I want to reveal one big waste of electricity by WAPDA, LESCO and other cities electricity board employees. One low grade LESCO employee told me that he is getting 2,100 units free electricity per month. He told that senior officers are getting 7,000 units and more free electricity per month. So, these employees are getting free electricity equal to their salaries.
All this free electricity is being wasted on numerous air conditioners or selling to other rich people.
People of advanced countries cannot imagine living in such circumstances for a single day. I have never seen such an intense electricity load-shedding during my whole life.
Minister of water and power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf failed to fulfill his promises. Electricity load-shedding is one of the biggest issues in Pakistan including poverty and unemployment. Government should take drastic measure to finish this electricity load-shedding. Pakistani nation is unhappy that government and opposition are busy in other legislative issues instead of resolving these primary issues.
I challenge that I can resolve electricity load-shedding issue in one year if I become minister or high official of ministry of power.
