Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered the Ministry of Water and Power to cut down the duration of load-shedding by half. In urban areas, this step reduced loadshedding to 3 hours from 6 hours, in rural areas, the load-shedding reduced to 4 hours from 8 hours. Although it is a good step yet permanent reduction in load-shedding is impossible without completion of mega power projects initiated by the government.
Government should focus to construct more energy plants to meet energy crisis in country. Government should also focus on construction of dams. This will further curtails loadshedding hours in our country.
