Read, Think & understand the game International Powers are playing with us with the help of !

Electricity produced in Pakistan is from three main sources.

1). Hydral
2). Thermal (Gas/Steam/Furnace Oil)
3). Nuclear

There are four major power producers in country which include Water & Power Development
Authority (WAPDA) , Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC), Independent Power
Producers (IPPs) and Pakistan Atomic Energy
Commission (PAEC).

Below is the break-up of the installed capacity of each of these power producers (as of June-2008).

CHASNUPP-1                                                              325  MW 

Total (Nuclear)                                          ===>   462  MW


Hydal Electricity generated by WAPDA varies between two extremities i.e. between minimum of
2414 MW and maximum  of 6761 MW depending upon the river flow through the whole year.
Total Power Generation Capacity of Pakistan (including all sources) is 19855 MW and the
electricity demand (as of today 20-04-2010) is 14500 MW and PEPCO is merely generating
10000 MW.
So it is obvious that these 15-20 hrs power shutdowns in most parts of the country are not
because of the lack  of generation capacity but only because of IMF / World Bank policies
imposed on our nation by Govt. The Power Generation companies are not buying Furnace
Oil from PSO by saying they don’t have money to do that but we are all paying for Electricity
that is generated from Furnace Oil. This is the reason that top  refineries like PRL are operating
at 40% capacities. IMF / World bank has imposed to reduce budget deficit  by importing
less crude oil. But due to this fact all our industries are under severe crisis. None of our
political  party who are in Assembly is ready to speak on it because every one is blessed by
US / IMF / World Ban k.
Dear Pakistani’s,
This is a time to show your social activism your power and strength. It is your silence which is
deafening and your couldn’t care less attitude which makes the people in power more powerful
evasive and secure in their Air conditioned offices.
Please create awareness,  spread the message …….


Electricity now is @11 Rs. per unit, and it will increase after every two months as directed
by (American) IMF policies.
Also CHINA offers to Pakistan Electricity for just Rs.200 Monthly Bill and Unlimited
Usage of Electricity but our government is not taking the offer seriously. This is because
there will be neither kick backs nor  any commissions to be pocketed by the strong mafia
of politicians and bureaucrats.  These people are there because of your votes. Let them serve
you rather than rule you……
