Pakistan has been starving for electricity since the very beginning of the 21st century due to the poor planning of both the previous and the current governments.
With the dawn of 2012, this problem has worsened. During the ongoing scorching summer, the nation is bearing the burnt of excessive and unscheduled load shedding.
There is no electricity available to the rural dwellers who hardly see the wheels of their fans running for two hours in a day.
In the urban areas, people suffer without electricity for more than 18 hours. The same goes with the industrial sector which has gone to dogs. The daily wagers are enduring starvations because of the closure of the factories.
As a whole, the country is moving backward on the ladder of progress. It seems that the stone age is returning over here.
The unabated load shedding has provoked the people to create protest demonstrations and riots. Every day, there are arsons, road blockages and strikes across the nation.
The mournful matter is that the government has not initiated even a single watt power production project in the last five years despite the fact that the electricity consumption has increased manifold.
If this continues, Pakistan will soon render into a barren and pitiable state. The crisis must be controlled at this stage; otherwise they will weaken the fabrics of the nation badly.
The only way to fix the problem is resorting towards the non-conventional power generation sources like Solar Energy, Wind Energy, Waste to Energy and Nuclear Energy.
