The killer K-Electric

1576

The current torrential monsoon rain has brought devastation to the Karachites. The rains, as usual, besides exposing other provincial/district departments, have also exposed the inefficiency and non-serious attitude of the privately managed K-Electric whereby more than 30 persons have lost their life due to electric current. The incidents like these do indicate that the K-Electric doesn’t possess the capacity to handle and tackle the important affairs of saving human lives during rain emergency situation; and, accordingly, people have virtually started calling it a “Killer Electric”. There is also a big question mark over the operational efficiency and output of the K-Electric during heavy rains in Karachi as, besides electric current, the residents of the city experience frustrating long hours of the breakdown of electricity as a result of the tripping of feeders. Actually, the K-Electric is playing with the human lives and sentiments and, therefore, its such actions should not be condoned and pardoned by the general public and the government of the day. K-Electric must be brought to book for its criminal negligence and all those responsible within the organization must be held accountable so that the incidents like these don’t happen again.
