    Power blackout avertable if govt worked on governance: Omer

    January 25, 2023 - Pakistan Observer


      Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Additional Secretary General Omer Ayub Khan lashed out at the imported government for the power blackout and said that this could have been averted if they had not concentrated on giving themselves an NRO-2 to end their corruption cases and worked on governance.

      In a statement on Tuesday, he rejected the imported government's presser and stated that the Power Blackout yesterday was due to gross negligence. The imported government wanted to save fuel and did not have sufficient plants online to take the morning rising load. He said that the PTI government had made huge investments in the Transmission and Distribution (T and D) Systems. Omer stated that the PTI government took Transmission capacity from 17,000 MW to over 27,000 MW. He said that the PTI government had eliminated load shedding in 80% of the country except high loss feeders even during peak summer months.

      The basic issue is that the Imported government has bankrupted the country and run out of dollars to purchase commodities including fuel. 'If the Imported government had not concentrated on giving themselves an NRO-2 of Rs 1100 billion and worked on governance, this could have been averted.
