Building a Dam takes around 4-5 years on average.. the kalabagh dam would take around 10 years starting from scratch, considering that now everything before it planned is already back to scratch.
even small dams would take around 2-3 years if a skilled chinese company comes and does it, since china has very fast build times for small dams..
There is no petrol in pakistan from natural sources, so there canot be free supply of oil to power companies to make electricity.
PSO is nearly on defaulting every other month due to non payments so imported oil is always on risk between consumer and commercial generation.
Gas electricity generation is now stopped so as to provide gas supply to home users in winter, which is what did happen as our dead gas supplies are atleast able to cook breakfast.
before gas supply was stopped, there was electricity all over pak, as apparent in just previous 3-4 pages of this thread.
Govt is also developing solar parks and wind mill parks to generate electricity which again take a lot of time money and resources to build..
time which requires patience, which probably none of our nationals have.
All of the above problems are ABSOLUTELY not specific to current or any previous govts.. these are naturally existing problems, which are inherent to our country.. so which ever govt comes, or martial law, or we get taken over by another country,. they all will ave the same problems, fixing of which takes time, a LOT Of time...
problem has always been the blame game, that each new gov puts on previous and instead of taking any single step to rectify, they just pass their time and move on.. if for once something is actually STARTING, it would be wise to appreciate a start , since there has been none before..
As for the PM being responsible for supplying each and every home with electricity and fixing their meters himself, and fixing your and my "pankhe ka Switch" and changing "tubelight k starters" , its not a PM job.. blame your local wapda people for that.. if i could, i would bomb our local wapda office, they all deserve it..
and since PESCO is now under KPK ruling, it is beyond the control and regulation of punjab govt and central govt.. KPK MPA and MNA are now responsible for entire management and production and supply management... this is how NPM should have been, finally, it has arrived, hope it stays.,.
and i spend most of my day light out side of lahore in smallest poorest villages, in far away districts from lahore, so i do have Hands on experience of 14 hours to 18 hours loadshedding each and every single day for past 7 years, and especially considering that in a hospital, loadshedding could lead to someone`s death, yet we are still managing it..
PS: i am not affiliated with any party.. i hate them all with equal passion,. all politicians in general...except Mitt Romney and altaf hussain, (they are hilarious )
PPS: of all the others i do believe IK is better as a human being than all others, but not vote worthy still, as its still politics..
