NEPRA reported that the country will face a short fall of 1200 megawatts in 2020. Government had paid Rs480 billion to make the power sector independent.
The report is alarming especially when the government has some other area also to focus on, like terrorism. Government had time to time claimed the complete elimination of load-shedding maximum till the end of this decade.
