With every passing day, the loadshedding menace in the country is growing and becoming unmanageable, despite tall promises from officials to put an end to it. Even though the first meeting the Prime Minister chaired soon after his election was billed to provide relief to the people bearing the summer’s scorching heat, there has been little improvement. Rather than reducing the hours of loadshedding the outages in some areas have become more prolonged. This grim scenario has forced people to come out in the streets and blame the ruling elite for doing nothing to improve the worsened situation that the hot weather was bound to create.Speakers at a seminar organized by theNawa-i-Waqt Group at the Aiwan-i-Waqt were unanimous in accusing the successive regimes of lack of vision to launch mega projects in the power sector. They specifically mentioned the Kalabagh Dam project. Some speakers termed those who opposed its construction enemies of the country. They were of the view that faulty policies of the rulers have ruined the national economy and a growing number of citizens were being rendered jobless. They bitterly criticized the present government policy of relying on the IPPs and RPPs instead of working on a war footing to resolve the crisis. No one knows how long the people would have to pay the price of government’s failure to act in time.
