If the heatwave in Pakistan was not enough, the government decides to test Pakistanis further. There have been electricity issues all over Pakistan but in Peshawar and surrounding areas including Mardan and Nowshera, there has been no light for over 14 hours.

Angry, furious citizens have come out on roads to protest against this inhumanity during Ramadan. Roads were blocked by citizens as a display of their anger. Tear gas was used by security officials to disperse the protestors.

Earlier we informed our readers that Former Finance Minister Miftah Ismail claims that there will be no load-shedding in Pakistan in next 7 months on the basis of the liquidity crisis. This means that from June to December there will no load-shedding in the country. But the current electricity situation all over Pakistan is contrary to this statement.
