Pakistan has decided to cut off power supply to homes and industrial areas due to the recent energy crisis in the country.

According to media reports, the war in Ukraine has led to a record rise in fuel prices worldwide. As a result, Pakistan is struggling to buy fuel with foreign currency if the country needs it. In the last nine months, Pakistan’s energy costs have risen to about ১৫ 1.5 billion. Which is exactly double his previous year.

Newly-appointed Finance Minister Miftah Jamil’s Twitter post said that Pakistan was forced to shut down the 3,500-megawatt thermal power plant on April 13 due to lack of fuel alone. About the same amount of power plants have been shut down due to technical problems. Jamil said the 7,000-megawatt power plants would provide one-fifth of the country’s total electricity needs. The same tune was heard on the face of Tahir Abbas, an expert from Karachi.

Experts claim that the power crisis is adding a different dimension to the economic challenges facing Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif. Being relatively poorer than the rest of the world and having no such source of energy, it is totally dependent on imports. That is why the price of the war in this way has increased in the country.

At the same time, Pakistan, one of the countries that imports liquefied natural gas, has not exported even with a number of promises. As a result, the country is in turmoil. The spot market on Sunday issued a tender for the purchase of six LNG cargoes. Once the process is complete, the country’s government may have to spend millions of dollars. The question is whether Islamabad can handle it.
