Recent loadshedding, the truth comes out

Finally someone speaks the truth and it took the people of this city to make them come out with it.  As an angry mob took to the streets of Karachi on Thursday officials of the KESC admitted that they had purposely lowered the production capacity of the Bin Qasim power plant to save them from buying furnace oil.

The direct result of this action saw a period of 10-12 hr load shedding per day for Karachites over the last week or so. According to sources, this emerged during a briefing to Speaker of the Sindh Assembly Nisar Khuhro, Pakistan People’s Party leader Taj Haider and Sindh Minister for Industries Rauf Siddiqui, who joined them later.

The speaker later told the public that KESC officials also confessed to having prior knowledge of the incoming gas cuts due to maintainence and did absolutely nothing to safeguard their supplies of gas or stock up for this period.

I hope the government has some kind of a plan to rectify this purposely created shortage of electricity soon or the people sitting out fanning themselves on the roads will head to their offices to demand answers themselves.
