In the midst of the struggle for bread, another new problem has arisen on the neighboring country of Pakistan. Actually, the power system has failed in Pakistan, due to which there has been a power failure in the big cities of Pakistan like Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi. According to Power Minister Khurram Dastgir, the crisis was triggered by a large voltage fluctuation south of the national grid. Later, due to the widespread effect, the power generation units were shut down one by one. Due to non-availability of electricity till late night, people had to work by lighting candles and lanterns. In many homes, people are forced to live in darkness.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has constituted a high-level committee to investigate the cause of the incident. Sharif sought an immediate report from the Energy Minister on the power crisis. He has asked to find out the reasons for the power failure and identify those responsible for it.
