Pakistan's Ministry of Energy announced Tuesday the full restoration of electricity, a day after it said the country had suffered a nationwide blackout.
Energy Portfolio Minister Jurrum Dastagir said that "all 1,112 stations of the national grid have been restored," while explaining that some coal or nuclear plants will take an additional 48 to 72 hours.
"Until the operation of these plants, there will be limited load management, except for industrial users," Dastagir has added, as posted via his Twitter profile.
The energy head has mentioned that the Pakistani government suspects "foreign intervention such as system hacking" in relation to the cause of the breakdown.
However, as noted by the newspaper 'Dawn', early in the morning, contrary to the government's claims, there are several areas across the country deprived of power.
The country's Ministry of Energy reported on Monday morning that at around 7.34 local time (3.34 Spanish peninsular time) there was a reduction in frequency in the national grid, which caused a widespread failure.
