Karachi—Karachi Electric (KE) has since past two days started suspending the supply of electricity every hour for at least one hour. This cycle is sometimes worsened by the prolonged duration up-to 2 hour of blackout.
Normally, summer starts in mid of February and the supply of electricity is widely interrupted. The Karachiites are since past many years facing worst water scarcity and the suspension of electricity become a dreadful test for them.
The KE while suspending supply of electricity so frequently, doesn’t inform the consumers about period of suspension of electricity. The sudden and frequent suspension and resumption of electricity has also destroyed precious electronic goods of the consumers without any compensation to the millions of the affectees.
The power supply situation on the advent of summer with so frequent spells of blackout is a clear indication of unprecedented worst season for the Karachiites. NNI
