Electricity Crises in Pakistan Leads People to React Furiously on Social Media

Today, due to a technical fault in the Tarbela Power Plant, electricity throughout the country had been cut out and load-shedding was observed almost everywhere.

According to reports, the national grid is facing a shortfall of 4000 megawatts electric supply.

According to Radio Pakistan, four nuclear power plants at Chashma also tripped due to tripping of main transmission line of Tarbela. A spokesperson of Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission told Radio Pakistan that nuclear plants will be re-connected to the national grid once fault in main transmission line is rectified.

The power supply has been gone since earlier this morning, which left Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as well as some parts of Sindh and Balochistan in the dark.

People on social media obviously had a lot to say, especially blaming and targeting the current ruling party PML(N).
