This country is going to the dogs - In addition to the number of hours electricity was totally non-existent during daytime, here is what happened today:
7:00PM - 8:00PM
9:00PM - 10:00PM
12:00PM - 1:00AM
3:00AM - 4:25AM (WTH???? Are they ******* kidding me?)
And still to continue, I've lost count now ... (still up at 4:30AM, I work late nights)
Some numpty from PEPCO announced a few days ago to cease all load shedding for 2 days http://www.thenews.com.pk/updates.asp?id=79193 (WTH??!?!!?), so there wasn't any load shedding a for 2 days, and now immediately it's effing no holds barred 'forced' load shedding????
The way I see it , here is what's happening:
Oil prices went up a few months ago, and pakiland promptly raised their prices, but when the price went down to $30/barrel, in pakiland it's still the same price (obviously bringing prices down once they go up is not in fashion - in fact, it's downright embarrassing for pakiland to do so). Now, someone had this bright idea to stop selling oil to energy generation companies, and create an artificial energy crisis (OH NOES, INDIA DRANK ALL TEH WATER, HAALP!). Since people were not using electricity 24 hours a day (actually, they were unable to use it, since there IS no electricity available), they quadrupled the electricity prices so that the same amount of money could be made as if they were ACTUALLY using electricity 24 hours a day. In addition, wapda installed meters that run so fast, they'd win a gold medal in a 1000m race in the olympics . So, where is all the oil going? Obviously they want to sell it to the highest bidder - e.g. you and me , in the form of petrol (why the hell would anyone in their right minds want to sell it to the electricity generation companies at subsidised rates?) .
