“Power crises in Pakistan”
    Pakistan is in the grip of severe power crisis. Followings are some solution of power crisis in Pakistan. In the 1990s two approaches were postulated by power experts to tackle power shortages of developing countries.

This model was advocated for developing countries where corruption is rampant.
The second model was for countries with less corruption where the government would regulate and control power production while guaranteeing fuel supply for power plants through individual agreements. Thus the government would retain control over the power supply network.

  There are many power crises:
  * Electricity load shedding
  * Natural Gas shortage
  * Water shortage

In response the electricity load shedding of hours is being observed all over the country.
Most affected in recent times are the business people and industries, which are all shut down due to power outages. Common people who rely on power for their living are most affected and furious; hence loads of people have hit the roads once again to remind the current government of Pakistan Peoples Party...
