KESC : believe it or not

Believe it or not KESC announced big achievement today. You will never come across such statements anywhere but KESC proudly informs readers :

” KESC promises smooth power supply today “

The only company in the world which is informing its consumers that finally, today it will be doing its job properly. That too because of the Chehlum else they would even miss this one too. Lets wait & see if promise materializes or it becomes a challenge.

1 whole day without trouble in an year, a big achievement for KESC

    ‘Smooth power supply’ my foot.
    If not govt. then the public should kick on the ass at KESC ppl, if they were not capable to solve the problem why did they buy it ?

    Why dont they disrupt the power of their own houses, why for their own engineers the electricity is free, they are just bullshitting the ppl of Khi.

    The ppl of Khi didnt get any relief by the denationalization of KESC, they are still paying higher bills and facing shortage of electricity throughout the year.

    Public interest should have kept in mind while taking major decisions to privatize any of the organization.

    KESC – the cancer infested utility provider which is detriorating fast and would die before 2010.

    Those who PURCHASED are regretfully sad about an irreversable decision,.

    i really do not get one thing.

    what was the whole point of privitising the KESC. I read somewhere that govt would be giving billions of rupees to support KESC this year.

    if the investors are not investing even after purchasing more then 70% of the shares then y did the govt sell it to them if the gov had to pump in billions to support even after selling it?

    we hear from time to time that the new owners would be pumping in hundred’s of millions of usd in the comming years….y did they wait before investing? they bought it almost 2 years back and till now have not even started the upgradation process!

    this is really criminal… so this summer the people of karachi would again suffer!

    the situation at KESC is so bad that if govt don’t help them out they’ll simply walkout even if it means forfeiting of all their investment…

    Please correct me if I’m wrong. KESC is a power distribution company, now a power generating company; the problem is that Karachi doesn’t generate enough power (electricity), therefore, the problem doesn’t lie with KESC it lies with the power generation plants/companies.

    please note that KESC is a power generation, transmission & distribution company, it’s 3 in one.

    the people who bought it knew that the production capacity is not enough and they would have to upgrade all the 3 sectors mentioned above. so now there is no excuse not to invest in the company they bought!


    they should have known that they have to make substantial investments after buying it.

    otherwise the previous set was no worse then the present. tell me what was the whole point of selling it?
